More Fake Attacks on US Banks Blamed on Iran Validate Secret Technocratic Grid…(Get Out Of Banks!!)
October 20, 2012
Last week, Ally Financial Inc. (AF) claimed “unusual activity” on their website which resembled being monitored. Other US Banks such as BB&T Corp and Capitol One, credit card issuers, have reported cyber disturbances. SunTrust Banks and Regions Financial Corp have also been affected.
AF, which used to extend credit for General Motors (GM) Co. (before they were acquired by the US government), has publicly stated they have been monitored, yet Gina Proia, spokeswomen for AF, has refused to elaborate on the details.
AF, the largest car loan lender in the US, was party to the subprime credit extensions that were bundled into the securities and sold on the global market which resulted in the stock market crash of 2008. In September of this year, GM sought to acquire AF’s international arm in Europe along with other banks.
BB&T became victim of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Brian Davis, spokesman for BB&T stated: “BB&T is experiencing intermittent outages on BBT.com due to a ‘Denial of Service’ event.”
Also Capitol One websites, both online banking and corporate, were attacked with DDoS which are being attributed to a new hacktivist group called Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters. Tatiana Stead said that glitches on the Capitol One website will continue due to system upgrades. Stead explained: “All of our systems are fully operational. In light of the recent events, we have taken a number of precautions which may inadvertently cause some challenges for a small number of customers visiting our website. We encourage anyone experiencing any difficulties to call our customer service.”
