This article (posted on internetnews.com) discusses the breach of CheckFree bill paying service last week.

The security breach of the CheckFree online bill paying website was conducted with a blended attack, using a variety of techniques including phishing, pharming and drive-by malware downloads. Visitors to the CheckFree website were redirected to a server located in the Ukraine that downloaded software onto their computers. However, it has not yet been determined what the software does if downloaded.
