U.S. Bancorp Says ‘Attacks’ Slowed Service to Website Customers

U.S. Bancorp said it’s working with federal law enforcement officials after “attacks” on its website caused delays for customers.

“These issues are related to unusual and coordinated high traffic volume designed to slow down the system, similar to what other banks have experienced in the past week,” said Nicole Garrison-Sprenger, a spokeswoman for the Minneapolis-based company, in an e-mailed statement. Customer data and funds are secure, she said. “We are continuing to monitor the situation today and we will take any precautions we deem necessary.”
