comment What is risk of having memcache in public interface?
The documentation I've read seems to indicate the application is susceptible to stored cross site scripting versus reflected - in which case social engineering isn't required. Also, please read the article over data ex-filtration. The person was able to extract cached data from mem cache. If any sensitive data was cached (userID's, passwords, connection strings, etc) it could have been compromised.

comment What can I do as a user to minimize the risk of online banking?
To further Andre's (sorry, don't know how to make the special e) point on the first bullet, technology has emerged that allows infosec personal to either A.) Block Tor users from accessing their websites or B.) Limit the functionality of a Tor user while they are logged into a website. The reasoning is that a typical user does not use Tor, however, nefarious types who want to remain anonymous are more likely to use Tor.

There are companies that offer Advanced Threat Analytics (hint, hint) solutions that may fit your needs. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend a specific vendor.

comment Safety of exposing an internal web application to the internet using a reverse proxy in the DMZ
So would it be out of the question to have this site behind a VPN portal, or restrict access to allowed network segments?

+1 for the Skeletor avatar. Will the users of this system be predefined? In other words, will this application be used by random internet clients, or will it primarily be used by other businesses?
