"It's enough with someone else's pin and social security number so you can log on to their mobilbank."
"at Least if you have Danske bank's mobile app."
"Now calls on the Swedish data Inspection board of the bank to increase security to protect the customers – otherwise the app may be banned, reports the SVT News."
"you Will come across another person's pin and social security number, you can also simply log on to their mobilbank. Then you can certainly not access the money in the account, but can create you a good picture of the other person's economy."
"What have you been, have you been to a doctor and paid a läkarräkning, how much you receive in pay and what loans you have," says Adolf Slama, it äskerhetsexpert at the data Inspection board to SVT News as an example of what information you can get across."
"to come to grips with this problem chose the Swedish data Inspection board initiating an audit of Nordea, Handelsbanken and Danske Bank's mobile apps at the end of 2011. The three banks were assessed to have the biggest security in their mobile apps."
"All three banks have now come up with suggestions on how the security should be increased but according to the Swedish data Inspection board is Danske Bank's proposals are not secure enough."
"– The solution they suggest does not agree to the measure. We will follow up on this. They have not done anything then so can we prohibit them to have the app up and running, " says Adolf Slama to SVT News."
"Danske Bank's proposal meant that the app would recognize each user's unique way to beat out the pin. It would, therefore, be had to look into its code with the same speed and compression strength every time to be able to log in."
"But it is not enough for the Swedish data Inspection board. They make the assessment that it will be difficult to find a middle ground that both keeps out unauthorized persons and ensures that the user can log in regardless of physical condition. Now have Danske Bank on to 2014, with to find a new solution – otherwise the app may be banned."
"Other banks approved"
"Handelsbanken's and Nordea's proposal, however, has been approved by the Swedish data Inspection board. They suggest that bankappen should be tied to a particular telephone. In this way, the login is limited, and together with the pin code, it shall provide adequate protection against intrusion."
