NatWest

LucDesk caught this fascinating story in The Register about the browser requirements for accessing NatWest online banking. The company has essentially blocked out all but PC Internet Explorer users because of security concerns with other browsers. That's probably not going to go over too well. NatWest has cut off users of Netscape Navigator 4.76, 4.77 and 6 and Mozilla from its online banking service today after it was advised the browsers could be a security risk. IT consultants have told the bank they could not guarantee the security of customers' data through the browsers and so they have all been switched off.
