A reader writes: "The Observer newspaper (the Sunday edition of The Guardian) in the UK is reporting what looks like a major security problem with Internet bank accounts run by Fiserv. The U.S. company says it runs more than 200 million accounts on-line, looking after more than £15bn of customers' money. The guy who discovered the problem, Ralph Dressel, showed The Observer three sample printouts giving account details of customers at the Amalgamated Bank of Chicago, the Bank of Oklahoma and the Sovereign Bank in Connecticut. As well as seeing account details, Dressel claims he could have changed PIN numbers or transferred money to his own account."
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be
done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
