Halfbreed trojan targets US banks

Palpy

Does anyone know --

-- if the trojan facilitates infection of the bank's systems? Or does it remain resident on the client's PC only?

I read over the IBM report, but I'm in a hurry and so adding distraction to my native ignorance, I probably misunderstand most of what I scanned.

My home system is secure against Windows trojans, but I am curious whether the described malware potentially erodes the security of online banking even if the client's PC is secure. Thoughts?
