Wells Fargo target of cyber attack, Facebook page says

Wells Fargo, which just last week reported a cyber attack, has been hit Thursday with another one, according to its Facebook page.

Here's what the page says:

"We're experiencing a denial of service attack, which is a deliberate attempt to disrupt website access by flooding a site with traffic, similar to a cyber traffic jam. If you're having difficulty accessing the site or mobile banking, try logging on again as the disruption is usually intermittent. Rest assured that your account and personal information are safe. You can also call 800-869-3557 or visit one of our stores to access your accounts. We're sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue."

Also Thursday, Winston-Salem-based BB&T said that its site was affected this week by a "targeted cyber event."

San Francisco-based Wells did not provide immediate comment.

Why the hell would it be announced on Fakebook? Not too professional.
