An Associated Press investigation has found that two of America's biggest retail banks Chase and Wells Fargo are quietly using some callers' voiceprints to fight fraud.

Privacy advocates and legal experts question the practice. Customers who call bank support numbers are often informed that their calls may be monitored or recorded, but aren't asked to give their consent for biometric analysis.

Kmart was able to quickly remove the malware but the chain believes that certain debit and credit cards numbers have been compromised.
