PNC Bank Warns 5 Million Customers It Might Have Been Hacked
The bank has sent a message to some five million customers warning of a possible cyber attack, the AP Is reporting.
So far, the bank’s “websites are getting hit with high traffic consistent with computer attacks,” according to the report, and has some users have been blocked from the site.
What happens in this case is that hackers will hit the site with “denial-of-service” error pages, which in turn inundates the site with traffic and makes it difficult for customers to log into their accounts.
They’ve been keeping the attack at bay for now, but it looks like some customers may have been blocked in the process.
