Attacks Against Credit Union Decrease

The most evident change in the types of U.S. institutions under attack during September 2007 is a significant decrease in attacks towards credit unions. After three steady months near 40%, credit unions comprised only 29% of attacked U.S. banks in September. The percentage of nationwide banks in the U.S. targeted for attacks grew slightly to 39%, when compared to both July 2007 and August 2007. Regional banks comprised just 23% of the attacked institutions in August 2007, but increased somewhat significantly to 32% of the attacked institutions in September 2007.
