Swedbank smacked by DDoS attack

Website unable to process online transactions

Scandi finance house Swedbank has been hit by a DDoS attack, which has taken down access to online banking via its website.

Customers can access their online accounts through a specific URL but are unable to transact with the bank through its website.

Mobile applications and payments continue to function, Swedbank spokesman Claes Warren said.

The website was also hit by a hacker attack in October. Warren said it probably wouldn't be the last such attack.

The bank said it expects the site to be "up and running soon". ®
