OT - HSBC website

on Sat Jan 30, 2016 1:45 am

" Sorry, there appears to be a system problem. Please try again later. (085) "


I've ranted & raved at everyone else today, so I might as well stick something on here too

Internet banking been down all day for the umpteenth time in the past couple of months.  A complete joke for an organisation as globally strong as HSBC is.

The last day of the month usually a busy one for settling invoices, paying salaries etc, but today is also the final working day to pay self assessment tax for 2014/2015 by bank transfer.

Even so, I can't believe that traffic has increased that much, but bloody inconvenient

Apparently, it's a DDos attack by an anti-ISIS group. Phew, I was worried for a moment.

(PS.....They are welcome to my overdraft if it will help the cause)

Why are an anti-ISIS group targeting HSBC? Shouldn't they be targeting, you know, ISIS?

Ah, got that slightly wrong............

The anti-Isis group took down the BBC website on New Years Eve, just as a practice run before tacking Isis.  Full story here.
