    Personal financial links hijacked!

      Financial links hijacked.  Somehow access to our credit card and bank online accounts have been blocked.  After trying to log in, a form appears requesting personal information, including card numbers.  One even wants my SS# and mother's middle name!  Cant figure out where McAfee's protection was during this major hijack.  Anyone else had such an intrusion?  Suggestions?

          The first thing you can do is to update to the latest DAT version and do a full scan and see if it resolves the issue.

          Also try submitting any suspicious files you think are present in your system and do not enter any password/credit card numbers as these might be password stealers.


          You can find detailed instructions for how to submit a sample/file  at <http://vil.mcafeesecurity.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx>

          One more thought, just ask your bank officials if by any chance they have blocked it for any particular reason. (Although this might not be the case).
