A group calling itself "Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters" launched a series of DDoS attacks against the websites of several U.S. banks during September and October, severely disrupting online and mobile banking services for extended periods of time.

The attacks are not that much different from the ones in September and October. There are some changes in the tools being used, but they are not significant.

Most banks and their providers are better prepared to defend against DDoS attacks now than they were two months ago. How does your CU stack up?
