Submission + - In-Secure Banking Security Software: Trusteer Rapport

thisNameNotTaken writes: Ever so often my bank has a pop-up which askes me to install a security application from www.trusteer.com. The application, "Trusteer Rapport", is a security addon which is to make my banking safer. Safer for whomn? Accoring to the Trusteer website, the "Trusteer works with leading banks to prevent criminals from taking money from your accounts".

Really, it seems that the application is a keylogger (http://goo.gl/1K5py) at best or at worst, it's a security nightmare which does not work and can be bypassed by malware (http://goo.gl/RWcfJ)(http://goo.gl/FAMwz).

Does anyone know if this software REALLY works, or, does it "phone home" with a users private information like the ATT CarrierIQ phone software (http://goo.gl/Sx72Q).

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
