My first information is an urgent information to my people is to be aware of fraudulent messages that may be dump or send to their e-mail box to be aware of.
Please and please, when you get an email from

Dear GT Bank Customer,

This is to inform the general public that on Friday 02/07/2010, the GTB Bank Network Server hosting was infected with an Mpack Multi-Pertite Malware (a computer virus used by cyber criminals to access and steal information from a database).

Though it is still unclear how many ATM & Internet Banking Information have been infected with the virus, computer security experts say 30% of ATM & Internet Banking Informations on the network would have been infected. As at 9:00am local time, we had received 117 complaints of unauthorized cash withdrawals from Bank Accounts through ATM & Internet Banking.
