Third Brazilian banking website crippled by hackers

Dow Jones/Fox Business, 02/01/2012

A concerted cyberattack against Brazilian banks moved into its third day, with hackers on Wednesday crippling the website of Banco do Brasil SA (BBAS3.BR), Brazil’s largest bank.

Banco do Brasil appeared to be as powerless to prevent the hackers’ activities as Itau Unibanco Holding SA (ITUB, ITUB4.BR) was on Monday, and Banco Bradesco SA (BBD, BBDC4.BR) was on Tuesday.

“TANGO DOWN!” was the now familiar cry made by the hackers via their Twitter and Facebook accounts.
