Implied in this is that the victims are running Windows. Given it is Brazil, quite likely very bad versions of Windows such as XP (but I expect it works on 7 as well). :(

Regardless, this is why users should only bank from actually secure systems such as ChromeOS (cheap Chromebooks FTW!). Or at least a less likely to actually be widely targeted Linux or BSD desktop (which they are equally less likely to have available given it isn't very novice friendly).
