Internet and mobile banking at the Rabobank has been badly hit by an attack on its computer network, the company reported on Monday.
The denial of service attack, in which the target computer is saturated with external communications requests, has made the network unavailable to its customers.
The bank has given no information as to when they will have solved the problem, says Trouw. Nor could it say who is behind the attack.
In February a cyber attack and fire at its headquarters in Utrecht were claimed by a group calling itself Conspiracy Cells of Fire. This proved to be false and it is still not known who was behind that attack, says the paper.
