Reuters reports that Bank of America’s ATM network was affected Saturday by a malicious Internet worm that affected Internet traffic worldwide.
Bank of America spokeswoman Lisa Gagnon said by phone from the company’s headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, that many, if not a majority of the No. 3 U.S. bank’s ATMs were back online and that their automated banking network would recover by late Saturday.
Why? I’ll bet that a number of folks will want to understand how such an Internet outage could have affected the largest ATM network in the US.
