PNC Bank has issued warnings to 5 million customers that high volume of traffic is a type of cyber-attack meant to slow down their servers. In an effort to block the “attacks” PNC Bank has accidently “blocked access for a small percentage of legitimate customers for an extended period.”
The email from PNC stated: “A number of banks in the U.S., including PNC, are seeing an unusually high volume of traffic at their Internet connections. This volume of traffic is consistent with threatened cyber-attacks on the U.S. banking system.”
The hackers essentially caused a denial-of-service (DoS) breakdown to occur, blocking out customers because of inundation of traffic. In total 58 downtime reports were admitted by PNC.
In 2011, Citibank reported that hackers obtained private information on 360,000 customers. Names, addresses, account numbers and email addresses among other information were taken. Citibank waited 3 weeks to notify their customers of the breach.
The security firm Radware stated that attacks on US banks last year originated in Saudi Arabia. Radware said that the malware was created “live” on a server; and came from an independent data center which held servers for corporations that conduct business with financial institutions in America. The logical assessment was that these relationships, by their nature, may be purposefully less secure, thereby allowing hacker attacks to take place.
