The State Bank of India, the country’s largest bank, has had to shut down its corporate website after overseas hackers tried to break in.
While the bank said that transactions took place through www.onlinesbi.com, a senior SBI source said that the transactions were slow as the entire system was under watch.
The country’s largest bank decided to shut down its corporate website www.sbi.co.in on Wednesday evening when hackers blocked some of the pages. The bank also noticed unusually high traffic on its website on Wednesday.
