It’s nice to see the majority of the nation’s financial institutions are cutting corners that will allow us little people to get screwed over! A recent University of Michigan study has found that over 75% of bank websites are not up to par in terms of security measures.

From EurekAlert:

The study looked at 214 financial institution websites and focused on both design flaws and improper security practices. None of these flaws represent catastrophic security issues, but many could allow for easier access to your password and user name should a malicious hacker come calling.

Even more interesting is that the study was conducted TWO YEARS AGO and that the banks that aren’t making the grade have not been identified. Suddenly I feel better about burying my money in the back yard! ; )
