CheckFree and some of the banks that use its electronic bill payment
service are notifying more than 5 million customers after criminals took
control of several of the company's Internet domains and redirected
customer traffic to a malicious Web site hosted in the Ukraine.

disclosed that it was warning many more customers than previously thought.
That's because CheckFree is not only notifying users of its own
CheckFree.com Web site of the breach, it is also working with banks to
contact people who tried to pay bills from banks that use the CheckFree

pay bills from our client's bill pay sites and minus those who actually
completed sessions on our site; and 2.) anyone enrolled in
