Santander has been busy denying that its Alliance & Leicester online banking site has been the victim of a hack attack.
Following several reports posted on forums, Santander confirmed that they’d experienced a technical failure with one of their partners, but there had been no leak of client data, and this problem hadn’t been caused by a malicious attack.
According to MoneySavingExpert, a Santander spokesman said:
“Santander’s internet banking systems utilise a number of third parties and one of these appears to have had a technical failure. It is being corrected by a third party and this is not an online banking security issue.”
