re: Bank Site Attacks Trigger Ongoing Outages, Customer Anger
Welcome to the cloud. This is the sole reason why I don't bank with online only banks. The customers of the affected banks at least have an option to find a branch office and do business there, although it is less convenient. Try that with ING Direct or others. As a customer should I drive to the data center and start talking to the server?

re: Bank Site Attacks Trigger Ongoing Outages, Customer Anger
@Moarsauce: you're generally right, except banks are each different, some work harder than others. For example, tdbank.com and everbank.com score higher CloudPower scores than any of the banks affected during the attacks last week. Banks are generally old-fashioned and are sort of late to the 'let's do this online' party. You can see yourself at banklook.com.
