It appears several websites where attacked all at once, as reported by the Australian

Actually there is a warning on the www.commbank.com.au home page and every user that logs onto Netbank gets another warning.

If you dont get a warning then Ive cleared your accounts out already!:bp:

Bank email fraud charge

From SMH

Police have charged a 25-year-old man in connection with a widespread email scam that duped internet banking customers into providing passwords to hackers last week.

Surry Hills police made the arrest within hours of the Commonwealth Bank issuing a warning to its customers to delete a fraudulent email that claimed to be from the bank.

Thousands of Australian internet users are believed to have received the spam email, which duped a number of Commonwealth Bank customers into logging onto a bogus bank website and unwittingly giving away their password and client number.

The bank said the hackers swiftly tried to remove funds from these accounts. The money has been refunded to customers.

The man will appear in Downing Centre Local Court facing charges of being an accessory to obtaining benefit by deception.


The man was released on conditional bail until his court appearance on April 10.

A NSW police spokeswoman would not comment on whether the man, believed to be Russian, was working in connection with offshore hackers.
