Michigan Based Insurance Provider Robbed $150,000

Brian Kerbs formerly of the  Washington Post – Security Fix now runs his blog Kerbs On Security is reporting that a Michigan-based insurance company – United Shortline Insurance Services Inc. was recently robbed of $150,000 via the ZeuS banking Trojan.

“On Monday, Feb. 8, United Shortline received a call from the Tinker Federal Credit Union at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma, inquiring about a suspicious funds transfer one of its customers had received for slightly less than $10,000,” writes Krebs on Security’s Brian Krebs.
“After that call, United Shortline President Louis M. Schillinger said the firm found 14 other such unauthorized transfers had been made from the company’s account to individuals across the United States who had no prior business with Shortline,” Krebs writes.

We at ScamFraudAlert.com have been following these activities for over the past five years and these cybercriminals have become sophisticated in carrying on these crimes.
