The solution's description
The internet transaction environment is being threatened more and more often by various attacks. Most of them are executed by special financial malware, or this malware is used in at least at one of the multiple phases of the attack.
The traditional approach to solving these problems with malware lies in reliance on the quality of antivirus products installed on the clients’ stations. An early warning of the malware infection is no longer sufficient. Another approach used by some entities relies on reactive solving of the malware cases when the local investigation, samples extraction, and manual analysis are carried out based on the client’s report. But this approach also seems to be insufficient in the online transactions' environment, because the transactions are being processed increasingly faster and they are getting out of the bank's reach. Subsequently, a more or less effective attempt of blocking the Command and Control centre of the given malware is done. This process is very long. The attackers usually reach the desired profit within several hours or days, and then they shut down the campaign.
AEC came up with an alternative to this approach in the form of the AFS tool that serves to detect malware, phishing, and other attacks on internet banking.
What is the AFS?
The AFS (Advanced Fraud Detection System) is a complex solution ensuring the protection of web internet banking applications and their users against cybercrime, fraud detection in the online environment, and the logging of users' activities.
The AFS detects the activity of financial malware, account takeover attempts, phishing, fraudulent operations, unauthorized accesses to functions, unsecured users' configurations and networks, attempts of web applications' attacks, attempts of automatization, etc.
