Default Attacks on German mTAN banking users

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...s-1222260.html

Quote:
Anti-virus software vendor F-Secure is reporting that a new version of internet banking trojan SpyEye uses sophisticated methods to intercept mTANs sent to mobile phones. In contrast to big brother Zeus, SpyEye appears to have its sights set on German internet banking users.

So, a solution would be to:
A) Use an OS that wouldn't allow such.
B) Setup the current OS to require stricter standards such as checking the document with PGP or something similar.
C) Require secure connection between the client and the bank.
