Roadster headlines entrepreneur's asset auction

A bunch of seized goodies formerly belonging to security services entrepreneur Charles Carroll will make their way to an auction block in Chapmansboro Wednesday morning. Carroll recently lost the Cheap Hill estate — the former home of State Industries founder John Lindahl — to FirstBank, which had lent him $2 million before the entity that owned Cheap Hill filed for bankruptcy. Among the highlights of what will be on show in the morning is the 1953 MG roadster pictured here as well as a 100th anniversary Harley Davidson Road King.

“We’re pleased to help the Sheriff sell this spread of equipment and vehicles,” said Will McLemore, President of McLemore Auction Company, LLC.  “We don’t get to do this type of auction very often but selling all this great stuff for the Sheriff from this beautiful horse farm is going to be a real treat.”

FirstBank adds protection

FirstBank is partnering with Webroot subsidiary Prevx to offer its customers online fraud protection services. Customers can download the Prevx SafeOnline Internet security solution for free, running it alongside any existing security system, to better protection personal information such as passwords and payment card details.

Over the past three years, FirstBank, as well as the entire industry, has had an increased number of account compromise incidents with its online banking customers. There appears to be an increased level of sophistication in the malware itself, e.g. attacks such as the notorious Zeus Trojan were evading detection from a customer's existing antivirus solution and harvesting information such as the user's surfing history and passwords.

Landy Dutton, FirstBank vice president and operational risk manager, said, "This is the first time we've had evidence of the threats facing our customers and the bank. The Prevx malware intelligence is crucial in helping us to understand the level of risk to the Internet banking customer so preventive measures can be taken."
