At this time, the banks targeted are primarily in South Korea.  However, if the scam is successful, there is no reason why it would not spread throughout the globe.

I'm forced to pay my Sprint bill through my phone because their crappy website won't let me do it from my PC, apparently because  the latest version of Firefox for Win XP is not good enough. But I do use an iPhone.

Going to have to break down and get a new PC just to be able to have a browser that works.

I do a lot of my bill paying and some banking on line. Citibank is really pretty good about security (at least in my experience). I've been doing it for yeas and haven't (to date) had any trouble.

I do almost all my bill paying online, but very little through my phone.  Even though I run antivirus on it, it still feels too insecure.

Addendum -

Yeah I do most of my bill paying online - but from my home MAC - not from my phone.
