Do not use the Internet Explorer browser program for the internetbank

Riga, Latvia, April 30, 2014, 17:00 / Banking

According to Microsoft, vulnerability in the Internet Explorer browser program has been discovered, which allows an attacker to remotely gain control over the user's computer. This publicly announced message increases the possibility for new targeted attacks. This discovered vulnerability allows to remotely execute a code in order to redirect the user to a malicious website or to a link by clicking on which the attacker gains control over the user's computer.

The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) reports that this is a serious threat which does not have any fast solution or a bug-fix. Users wishing to eliminate the risk of threat while using the internetbank should use other internet browser programs until the Internet Explorer problem is fixed. Please consider switching to other browsers like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.

We would like to remind, that for secure usage of the internetbank our clients can use a specially developed application for iPad tablets. The application is available in the App Store free of charge.
