US Bank, PNC latest to report website problems

NEW YORK (AP) — Two more major banks, U.S. Bank and PNC, have reported problems with their websites after a financial services security group warned about possible cyberattacks on banks.

A spokesman for U.S. Bank says some customers have experienced delays. He says the bank is working to fix the problem and is working with law enforcement. A spokesman for PNC says the bank is "taking appropriate measures."

The U.S. Bank spokesman says the issue appears to be related to problems at other banks in the past week. JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America both had system problems last week, and Wells Fargo reported access problems with its site Tuesday.

Last week, the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center raised its cyber threat level to "high" from "elevated" because of potential cyberattacks.
