Well,

you're right because the process sounds antiquated, but for them it's the most trustworthy way and they seem to fulfill 
their security policy. 

Every step like official announcements, bank statements or password changes that can not be displayed within the 
banking-portal, must use another (trustworthy) media. This can be snail mail, Post-Ident or in your turn you have to 
appear at their office.

Cheers,

Christian

Well, if we talk about Banks...

Hypo Vereinsbank (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HypoVereinsbank) has
kind of a strange security style: The online banking website will
disable your login once you enter it 3 times wrong. Your login is your
BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER. To re-enable it you have to go into one of their
offices IN PERSON and identify yourself by ID card and then they will
send your new password BY LETTER (not email).

Now, PLEASE, when you go to their online banking site and run your
one_script_to_block_them_all.py or whatever, PLEASE, skip my bank
account, ok?

Banking regards,

Alex

Santander are a joke when it comes to security. Fed up of two years of
battling with them to fix issues any other bank would have fixed in
seconds, things like XSS on login pages etc. Time to hit full disclosure
with some of these issues in the hope they'll change their game and start
to take their customers security seriously:


I had to chuckle.
The Spanish banks gave 100% mortgages to people who could just barely
finance the interest at ultra-low rates.
Now, they're taking back those houses and flats, evicting the owners
(who can no longer pay) and putting them into rented apartments (for
slightly less than the interest rates).
The banks were bailed-out by the government, which has now got to be
bailed-out by the EU.

Do you honestly think that "customers" actually exist on the radar of
those banks?
Hell - who needs customers, when you can have a bail-out?
