comment Penetration testing approach - Is there a better method?
@Atsby It depends on the scope. I've see some network pentesting companies who ran the equivalent of an nmap scan against our external network and collected a fat check. However, I've seen web application pen testing companies that were worth their fee and then some. These tests involved highly skilled and specialized pen testers utilizing human logic and intuition in combination with tools and were highly effective. I actually look forward to reading those reports because the things these people find are amazing. Long story short, you have to shop around till you find the right fit.

comment Are there any two way + two factor authentication systems in use?
@RoryAlsop I modified my out of band statement to be more accurate. However, if the premise is that it's not out of band because it can be compromised, then nothing can be truly out of band.

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.

You might look into "SeaSponge". I haven't used it myself, but it's supposed to be tailored towards SysAdmins.

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.

FWIW, IP address restrictions can be placed on one page specifically.
