Services return after mass outage of Australian internet banking services

Several major Australian banks experienced a major outage with customers unable to log into mobile apps this afternoon.

The affected internet banking services included Westpac, St George, ANZ and the Commonwealth Bank, as well as Australia Post and Allianz.

It was also reported Virgin Australia is also experiencing issues.

CommBank, ANZ and Westpac all tweeted it looked as though their services were returning to normal.

Tech expert Trevor Long said the cause is unknown.

“It’s quite a worrying one … never so many banks at one time which I think is causing a lot of concern,” he told Scott Emerson.

“It’s likely that one of the big content providers, they host all the websites, has gone down here in some way, whether that’s an attack, or a failure at their end, will take some time to work out.”
