Banks Bracing For Cyber Attacks Today

May 7, 2013

The Ohio Bankers League and Ohio Credit Union League say the Internet activist group Anonymous is planning a cyber attack today against the websites of financial institutions.

The two industry groups say accounts will remain safe, but hackers will flood the websites with enough traffic to shut down online transactions. If there is an attack, it will be the latest in a series that the banks have been dealing with in the past several months.
