Report on Banking Web Sites is Flawed

In a recent blog post, I cited a study by researchers at the University of Michigan, saying 75% of banking web sites had design flaws, making them vulnerable to hackers.

In a recent article by Larry Seltzer of eWeek, he said the findings from the study, which came out in 2006, are outdated. He said the results were either not relevant any more -- such as insecure login pages not using https -- or not real threats -- non-https Contact Us pages.

He goes through the rest of the report point-by-point and makes some interesting points.
