U.S. Bancorp, PNC, Wells Fargo Hit With Cyber Attacks


The customer websites of Wells Fargo, PNC Bank and US Bancorp are facing lingering slowdowns Wednesday that appear to be related to the cyber attacks that hit J.P. Morgan Chase and Bank of America last week.
U.S. Bancorp apologized to customers experiencing intermittent delays and said it is “working hard” to restore full connectivity.
“The issues are related to unusual and coordinated high traffic volume designed to slow down the system - similar to what other banks have experienced in the past week,” the bank’s senior vice president of corporate public relations, Tom Joyce, said in a statement to FOX Business.
“We are working closely with federal law enforcement officials to address the issue,” he said, but added that in the meantime customer data and their funds are secure.
PNC and Wells Fargo did not immediately respond to FOX Business for a comment, however a PNC spokesman told Reuters that it is aware of the situation and is working to restore full access.
