Bank buying its customers antivirus software

by Ivana Strahija on May 28th, 2006 Barclays bank in England will buy 1.6m licenses from F-Secure antivirus company to protect its customers.

Scared by the recent report of 56% of online banking users not running any antivirus protection, Barclays has decided to buy not only the antivirus software, but to pay for two years of virus database updates for almost 1.6 million of its customers.

Every customer will receive a license code and instructions where to download the program, said the Barclays officials, hoping this would lessen the number of users being defrauded. They also stated that they are not trying to lessen their liability in case of defraudment.
