New Virus Raids Your Bank Account - But You Won't Notice

This is a scary scam on any level. A new virus will drain your bank account and then covers its own tracks by removing the unauthorized transactions and readjusting the balance, leaving the account holder with no way to know someone has hacked into the account. The delay will be found sooner or later, but by that time the hacker will have been long gone and into other accounts.

The new virus technique ups the ante in the cat-and-mouse game between security companies and the computer criminals who try to steal consumers' money.
