"carried out by a gang of Eastern European's"

Even our criminality is being taken over by EU immigrants!

This type of thing has been going on for years and getting worse every year.
Nice to see the UK police getting in there fairly quick and puting an end to the UK side of it.

"They recruited dozens of ‘mules’ who would allow them to use their accounts to pay the money into in return for payment"

Perhaps those emails that I get every week from my friend in Nigeria are genuine afterall!

that is designed to detect and prevent any attempts to interfere with or capture my online banking login information.

It makes you wonder if it would be safer going back to the old days and keeping your cash under the floorboards.
It just sits in the bank rotting away and getting so little interest on it.
For all I have I do not need to worry to much about it.
I am a bit unlucky at times ,If I decided to buy Gold instead of putting it in the bank the gold prices would drop dramatically,If I bought antiques I would probably drop them.
If I put it under the floorboards the mice would get it.
So I have found the best thing to do is just to give it to the wife and she gets rid of it very quickly.

I am somewhat confused as to how they hacked the accounts. Every time I access my accounts I have to use an independent numeral generator and 2 or 3 specific letters of my passwords which change every log-in (the letters not the passwords).

If a teenager can hack in to the Pentagon etc there seems no really safe way of using this medium for personal finance.So far I have resisted on line banking but as one gets older it becomes more of a neccessity.

GANDALF <|:-)> I hope it is untrue but I read of a case of an "inside job" where the criminals had infiltrated a gang member into the bank's system control staff.

of using this medium for personal finance."

Your bank will refund any money that is fraudulently taken from your online account, provided you haven't negligently compromised your login details.

How you could be safer?

Any serious hacker is after more challenging tasks than an individual's bank details.

Looks like they are also using your mobile phones to hack your account.
