Last week, cyber attacks that claimed to be from middle eastern origin attacked six major US banks. The attacks did no harm to the people's funds or their accounts, but rather the cyber attackers flooded their websites with traffic which caused the bank's internet sites to shut down. People were not able to access their acounts for several hours. Although this was a tepid attack on some of the worlds most powerful banks, it was still enough to cause some uproar.
