Wells Fargo warned on Tuesday that its website is being targeted again by a distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack.
The bank said most of its customers were not affected. For customers who are having difficulty accessing the site and mobile banking, we encourage them to try logging on again as the disruption is usually intermittent, Wells Fargo said in a statement.
Wells Fargo is one of several large U.S. banks that have been targeted by cyberattacks in the past six months. A group claiming responsibility for the attacks, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters, said Wells Fargo is being targeted due to the continued availability online of a video clip that denigrates Islam.

Looks like Suq Madiq is at it again..........
Drudge’s main headline:
INTERNET HIT BY ‘BIGGEST ATTACK EVER’
What did Wells Fargo do?
Wells Fargo has treated me real well.
“When Muslims attack .....”
Islam is a cancer.
Radiation is the answer.
I do not know but will throw out something notice at the Drudge article from the comments; There is disagreement over whether the attacks are coming from outside the U.S. or from inside the U.S. My opinion ... both.
Does Wells Fargo have any connection to the video?
Is this the video they’re talking about? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjoa3QazVy8&bpctr=1364398736 .
Exactly, NTI. (Great handle, BTW) Not particularly sophisticated.
Thus, "distributed." The 'attack,' i.e. 'denial of service' operation is basically an application cycling rapidly repeated requests for their website through randomly selected routes and from behind a wall of proxies.
Worse, of course, would be a widely disseminated viral program timed to "phone home" from clueless infected slave computers throughout the Umma.
Go with the "Tor-like" first choice. Anyone could program a blank web page with a zero refresh rate and the WF website behind the curtain in HTML.
Wouldn't surprise me if this were the People's Army in the PRC, though, pretending to be offended defenders of the ROP.
And it could be some kid in his single mom's Line-In-Lover's basement in Seattle, too.
Thus, "asymmetric warfare."
Did you see the hiccup that came over the web at about 11:05 EDT?
please excuse me ... mind runs off into many locations.
I forgot to add I'll make a wager that you are very sophisticated and knowledgeable. You are a '99er. Can't be much more sophisticated or knowledgeable than a 99er. Thanks for your time.
It wouldn’t surprise me if its not PRC via NK with US help. Great false flag operation! Frankly, I “suspect” we’re being set up.
Homeland “Defense” doing a test run?
no problem here yet
