re: U.S. Bank Hacks Expand; Regions Financial Hit
Panetta used the attacks on ICS (Industrial Control Systems) as a warning to the US business community that similar attacks are imminent. It is also a calling for US business to embrace stalled cyber security legislation that has been bouncing around the House and Senate over the past 2+ years.

Companies have been reluctant, fearing legal repercussions for non-compliance and/or sharing sensitive information. And for those companies which worry about not complying with what is a pretty low bar of cyber security best practices -- too bad! They should be doing that already. I've long supported this cyber security bill and continue to do so -- now more than ever. HereGs another interesting article on this matter: http://blog.securityinnovation...

I guess you really don't care since it made sure I read your article and noticed a couple of your ads, but there is a bank in the USA called US Bank and your headline made it sound like this bank had been under attack for several days. This sort of poor headline wording could cause heart palpitations in people that are just returning to work from an 8 day, mostly disconnected, vacation in Florida.

re: U.S. Bank Hacks Expand; Regions Financial Hit
Hello everyone,

According to the statement "Capital One spokeswoman Pam Garardo said via email that on Oct. 9, Capital One experienced intermittent access to some online systems due to a denial-of-service attack. She emphasized that other bank channels--branches, call centers, ATMs, as well as its ING Direct and HSBC credit card websites--were not affected, and that no customer or account information had been exposed. 'Online servicing channels were fully restored within a few hours,' she said." I had a different experience. I could not get my online information or do anything until the next day. I received emails from the system but that was all that I could do electronically.

I wonder if the film is the real reason, or if it's a pretext. They could, after all, make the very same attacks on the pretext that they're U.S. banks and the U.S. is the Great Satan. They could even do it on the grounds that, like all western banks, they charge interest on loans, which Islam teaches is sinful.
