HSBC On-Line Banking Down Again

For the second time this month, HSBC’s on-line banking service for personal customers is unavailable.  However, in contrast to the outage earlier this month, the bank has explicitly stated that this disruption is the result of a denial of service attack.  It is not clear at this stage how long the services will be unavailable for but disruption from the previous outage persisted for more than a day.  The timing of the incident is particularly unfortunate as the end of the month is a busy time for salary payments.
