Is Online Banking Too Dangerous to Trust?
Many security experts are ready to say, "So long and thanks for all the phish." But the convenience and benefits of online banking are just too great for consumers to swear off.

Every holiday season we get stories about the dangers of e-commerce and pitches from vendors about how they address those dangers.
It appears that many experts are on the side of recommending against e-commerce altogether. Just too dangerous. I was recently involved in a discussion on the famous Funsec security list with several security experts who argued the same thing about online banking.
