    I think I might go back to buying money orders to pay my bills.

    I do not think this is being paranoid given the terrible consequences if my bank account can be hacked.

    Most banks state that if you lose money based on an "unauthorized" access to your account, you will not be liable and would be reimbursed. However, if a very large number of user's accounts and funds are involved, I am sure the likely response will be an immediate closure to the online banking server. In that situation, there will be a run on the online banks similar to 1929 (but since there are no branch offices, you will be totally blocked from your funds access). :argh: :doubt:
