Malware has become the primary attack tool used by cybercriminals to execute account takeover and initiate fraudulent transactions, and has been able to stay undetected by most security controls implemented by financial institutions. By preventing anomalous transactions generated by malware-infected machines, financial institutions can effectively prevent fraud and reduce operational costs.
The document highlights:
- The techniques used by malware to evade detection of most server-side security solutions currently deployed by banks
- How to accurately detect high-risk transactions by identifying malware's Programmable Crime Logic
- Best practices for using malware detection (e.g. integration with risk engines) to achieve transaction anomaly prevention
