A cyber attack to disrupt online banking services of Natwest left the customers unable to access their accounts online. The website suffered a distributed denial of service(DDOS) attack.
"Due to a surge in internet traffic deliberately directed at the NatWest website, some of our customers experienced difficulties accessing our customer web sites this evening. " Mirror quoted as Natwest spokesperson saying.
"We have taken the appropriate action to restore the affected web sites. At no time was there any risk to customers. We apologise for the inconvenience caused."
This is not the first time the Natwest website under a cyber attack. Earlier this month, all of RBS and NatWest's systems went down for few hours.
It is still unknown who is responsible for this cyber attack. Bank customers started to blame the Bank for not able to access their accounts.
