NSW Computer Crime Unit expert recommends not using Windows for internet banking

Computer expert Detective Inspector Bruce vad der Graaf from the Computer Crime Investigation Unit told NSW MPs to boot Linux off CD or use an iPhone for internet banking rather than using Windows. Interestingly he quotes the iPhone’s single-application-at-a-time as a plus, on the grounds it can’t be running any other dodgy applications at the same time as you’re banking (although I’m sure someone smart enough could probably get around those restrictions using some unofficial APIs…, given that the phone still runs Apple’s tasks at the same time as 3rd party apps).
