Bank of Valletta on Wednesday morning was compelled to shut down its operations after the bank’s systems fell victim to a hacking attempt.
All of the bank’s functions, including those at its branches, are currently suspended and its website is offline.
The bank reassured customers in a statement that their accounts and funds “are in no way impacted or compromised” and that it was working to resume normal services as soon as possible.
“The Bank is working closely with local and international police authorities in this regard,” it said.
“Bank of Valletta apologises to its clients for any inconvenience caused and will be keeping its customers and the general public informed of developments. The bank is working relentlessly to resolve the issue and have its operations running at the earliest possible time.”
