ANZ Bank website offline for third day
This is being serious underplayed – this item being more of a public service announcement rather than a news item.
I am seriously concerned that there might be more going on here than is meeting the eye and nobody seems at all concerned. Perhaps that is the jab talking?
ANZ Bank is still being hit by website problems for the third day in a row after a cyber attack on a number of organisations.
ANZ Bank, one of the country’s largest banks, said its online services were still experiencing intermittent outages this morning.
A spokesperson said customers’ cards, the bank’s ATMs and the phone banking service are all working.
Cyber attacks on government agencies and banks began on Wednesday, hitting websites of NZ Post, Inland Revenue, Kiwibank and MetService, along with ANZ Bank.

Customer are venting their frustration on the bank’s social media pages demanding that they sort it out, and saying three days of outages is totally unacceptable.
Last year the stock exchange and MetService were hit by cyber attackers.
