If you're a PNC customer, you probably got an email this morning, warning you aboutpossible cyber attacks.
The email stated: "A number of banks in the U.S., including PNC, are seeing an unusually high volume of traffic at their Internet connections. This volume of traffic is consistent with threatened cyber attacks on the U.S. banking system and is designed to cause access delays for legitimate internet customers."
The email goes on to state that`if you have an online disruption, you should use alternative banking methods and go to your local bank branch to do your banking. Channel 3 contacted PNC Corporate Headquarters, where a spokesperson told us customers can help protect themselves by not sharing personal or financial information on non secure websites. Otherwise, PNC security experts are handling the situation.
