Wells Fargo’s (WFC) website was hit by a cyber attack on Thursday, a person familiar with the matter told FOX Business, just a week after the banking giant’s consumer site suffered a similar problem.
The apparent intrusion marks the latest distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack to hit financial-services companies, blocking or slowing online banking access to consumers.
Attempts to access WellsFargo.com were unsuccessful earlier, but more recently the website appeared to be providing sporadic access.
There were 164 downtime reports over the past 24 hours by users on Sitedown.co, which tracks website access problems.
A source told FOX Business that the problems are tied to a cyber attack.
San Francisco-based Wells Fargo didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
