Re: Capital One attacked???



But in all seriousness though, cyberattacks are getting crazier.  I think it was about a year and a half ago where LulzSec took down the FBI website.  With so much financial material (among others) being electronic, it makes me worry.

Re: Capital One attacked???

I'm glad that I keep my money with several financial institutions, including some that are so small that hackers would never bother with them.  If one of my financial institutions' websites are knocked out of service by a DDoS attack, I can still pay bills with another account.

If you still have an account with Capital One, that is on you. They are in the newspaper almost weekly for various illegal or unethical attacks against their own client base.
