Cyber Risk Alert
Cybersecurity experts are informing the public about a cyber-attack known as “Dyre Wolf” that installs malware by tricking users into clicking on a malicious email. The malware monitors activity and waits for users to log into a bank website. Dyre Wolf then produces a pop-up warning indicating the website is having technical problems and to call a help center. Attackers answer the phone pretending to be bank representatives and attempt to get the customer’s password. Once they have the password, they transfer money out of the account. Pilot Bank will not ask for your password. Be careful and notify Pilot Bank immediately if you suspect you may have been compromised by this cyber-attack. We hope this information is helpful.
