HSBC online banking is down as bank is hit with cyber attack!
If you are a HSBC customer then the bank is advising you to avoid using your online banking and other services for the time being.
The bank has been hit by an attempted cyber attack. Anyone who has been attempting to access their account online will have received an error message saying: ‘We’d like to apologise to all our customers for Online Banking being unavailable.
“We know how inconvenient this is and we are doing everything we can to rectify the problem. Please try later.
A spokesperson for the bank has told the Independent: ‘HSBC internet banking came under a denial of service attack this morning, which affected personal banking websites in the UK.’
She added: ‘We are working hard to restore services, and normal service is now being resumed.’
The company has been directing people still experiencing problems to use its automated telephone banking services instead.
