"Trusteer's research is based on statistics gathered over a 12 month period from Rapport plug-ins running on more than 4 million computers. One of Rapportís features warns users when they type their bank login information into other websites. This feature is used primarily to detect and block phishing attacks that lure users to submit their online banking login credentials to fraudulent look-a-like websites.
For the purpose of this research, Trusteer gathered usage statistics from the above feature. Trusteer counted the number of customers who actually shared their online banking login information with nonfinancial websites. Note: Rapport and Trusteer do not store or log customersí passwords and this information never leaves the customerís computer."
