Your personal information and accounts may not be safe from these latest attacks that may have compromised data from PNC Bank, US Bankcorp, and Wells Fargo.
Global commercial customer websites of Wells Fargo (WFC: 34.42, -0.30, -0.86%), PNC Bank (PNC: 63.51, -1.03, -1.60%) and US Bancorp (USB: 33.95, -0.17, -0.50%) are facing severe traffic and server issues since late Wednesday. The website issues that appear to be related to the same cyber attacks that were deployed and executed aginst J.P. Morgan Chase (JPM: 40.24, -0.31, -0.76%) and Bank of America (BAC: 8.82, -0.11, -1.23%) last week. No known hackers groups have yet to claim responsibility for the attacks.
PNC and US Bankcorp spokesmen have apologized to customers experiencing any delays and stated they are “working hard” to restore site connectivity. Bank spokes man from PNC and Wells Fargo have also assured customers that no customer account data was stolen. I call it bullshit but who am I.
“The issues are related to unusual and coordinated high traffic volume designed to slow down the system – similar to what other banks have experienced in the past week,” the bank’s senior vice president of corporate public relations, Tom Joyce, said in a statement to FOX Business.
“We are working closely with federal law enforcement officials to address the issue,” he said, but added that in the meantime customer data and their funds are secure. A PNC spokesman told Reuters that it is aware of the situation and is working to restore full site access.
