HONG KONG -- Banking giant HSBC said Friday some of its websites had been hit by a “large-scale” cyber-attack that disrupted online services, but it assured customers that their data were not compromised.
The bank said in a statement that HSBC servers came under a “large-scale denial of service attack” on Thursday. It said a number of sites were affected around the world but did not give an exact number or say where they were.
