The FBI has issued a warning about a new malware attack targeting bank accounts. The malware is called Gameover and, according to the FBI, says it is able to defeat several forms of dual-factor authentication. The FBI suggests that consumers and businesses pay attention to suspicious emails purporting to come from NACHA, The Electronic Payments Association. Please be adviset that NACHA does not traditionally send emails directly to businesses or consumers.
If you receive any emails appearing to come from NACHA, DELETE THEM IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT OPEN ANY ATTACHMENTS OR CLICK ANY LINKS CONTAINED IN THIS EMAIL.
