Submission + - Why are my banks stupid?

An anonymous reader writes: Why can't I find a bank that isn't stupid?

Wellsfargo.com recently started loading (and requiring) javascript from akamai.net. This gives anyone who compromises akamai.net complete access to all Wellsfargo.com online banking functions. It's sort of like finding out that the bank vault has a back door that connects to the candy shop next door. Sure, the candyman is a nice guy, and he even locks his shop at night, but he's not my bank!

Just when I stopped fuming over that for a few minutes, an envelope arrived from Citibank. It shows my entire credit card number and advises me that my statement is available online.

Is there any bank that takes security at all seriously?
