Absa Loses internet?

Absa's internet banking for the last 24-48 hours have been so shockingly slow, or even non-existent, that many believe their security is at risk. When I was logged on yesterday, it was so slow that the left panel never appeared, and my surephrase was only displayed during log-on not during the session itself. The response rate was also so slow that clicking on an account took so long that the session would normally have timed-out (maybe it did, but it just didn't tell me?) before the click completed.

Hello Peter's comments are mostly going towards "other" because well, internet banking connectivity is not one of the options. http://www.hellopeter.com/feedback.php?period=7&company=ABSA

Personally I *hope* it's up to incompetence and not a security flaw. But, I have to say, there is not a single word on the site regarding it, there is no communication, it is absolutely shocking how bad they are handling it.

Back to the surephrase part, really ups the risk that it was a security problem. :-(((((((
