I have been banking online and paying on internet for more than 6 years now and so far I haven't had any problem. I would not be able to do any financial transaction otherwise, as I travel a lot.
As long as you practice "safe computing/networking", the risk is not very big.
- Use "protection" so that you don't have virus/spyware/malware on your computer. Get the latest Microsoft Windows security patches. Install anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall. Use router for internet and change the router login.
- Practice "safe email reading" - no clicking on links in suspicious email. Type or copy/paste the url to access sites.
