CitiDirect-SA-07/07/2010: Citibank CitiDirect – forced usage of vulnerable version of Java Runtime Environment
CitiDirect requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on client’s
computer and Java plugin enabled in client’s browser. But it requires a
“supported version” of Java, a list of which often does not include
latest version for months after release:
Users of unsupported version of JRE are denied access to online banking
– “The version of Sun Java™ software currently installed on your
computer does not meet the requirements to run CitiDirect® Online Banking”.
Impact of vulnerability

Users are forced to use in a browser a version of JRE plugin, that is
vulnerable to publicly known vulnerabilities, with publicly available
exploits.

Also users are trained to ignore notifications from Java about new
versions, as installing it denies them access to their money. It makes
them vulnerable permanently.

Texas Auto Insurance: State Farm Rate Increases

State Farm, in its filings with the state, raised rates an average of 8.8 percent in the fall and 4.5 percent in the spring, with the second increase taking effect May 1 for new business and June 1 for renewals. Under state law, insurers are allowed to implement increases while Texas regulators review them; the state has not issued its position on State Farm’s rate filings.

State Farm’s increases in North Texas and Tarrant County, already known for higher storm-related losses, are significantly steeper than its premium increases in some other parts of the state.

In one typical scenario in Fort Worth, the Texas Department of Insurance estimates that State Farm homeowners insurance policyholders who enjoy discounts for having multiple policies with the company could see their annual premium rise 31 percent after the two rate increases.
