Bank of Ann Arbor issued a warning early this year about cyber criminals engaging in corporate account takeover. That is when "cyber-thieves gain control of a business' bank account by stealing the business' valid online banking credentials. Although there are several methods being employed to steal credentials, the most prevalent involves malware that infects a business' computer workstations and laptops. A business can become infected with malware via infected documents attached to an e-mail or a link contained within an e-mail that connects to an infected web site," the bank said in a public statement.
