1. A method for increasing security of an electronic payment at a terminal apparatus, comprising:
monitoring whether an application program used for the electronic payment starts running in the terminal apparatus, wherein the terminal apparatus comprises one or more processors;
when the application program used for the electronic payment is monitored starting running, checking whether another currently-running program in the terminal apparatus has a keyword existed in a pre-set security-threat program listing; and
terminating the another currently-running program having the keyword existed in the pre-set security-threat program listing;
wherein checking whether the another currently-running program in the terminal apparatus has the keyword existed in the pre-set security-threat program listing comprises: during a running period of the application program used for the electronic payment, checking the another currently-running program in the terminal apparatus; extracting the keyword of the another currently-running program; and comparing the extracted keyword with the pre-set security-threat program listing,
wherein the pre-set security-threat program listing comprises a system process, a third party process, a plug-in, or a combination thereof, which, when running, causes a security threat to the electronic payment, and wherein the plug-in comprises a screen capture plug-in, a recording plug-in, or a combination thereof.
