"In an advisory Thursday, RSA said it has information suggesting the gang plans to unleash a little-known Trojan program to infiltrate computers belonging to U.S. banking customers and to use the hijacked machines to initiate fraudulent wire transfers from their accounts."

Now that's a credible threat.
Trojanized home computers are a dime a dozen & it's only a matter of time before a large organized attack monetize the inventory.
