Bank of America services totally crap out; hack not suspected

Some of Bank of America's 40 million customers "were unable to access their online banking accounts, mobile payment systems or the company’s telephone call centers on Friday," reports the NYT. An internal breakdown, rather than a hacking attack, is suspected, but the bank continues to investigate.

Reuters:

Since last fall, U.S. bank websites have faced a blitz of "denial of service" attacks in which hacker activists disrupt operations by flooding them with information. Customers logging into Bank of America's website on Friday received a message that said the site was "temporarily unavailable." Some customers took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.
Only, ahahahha, Twitter was all busted, too.
