Capitol One and SunTrust Banks have become the latest targets of hackers who have leveled attacks at U.S. financial institutions in alleged retaliation for the posting of a movie on YouTube that has offended some Muslims.

On Oct. 8, a group calling itself the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters posted a message on Pastebin stating that Capital One, SunTrust Banks and Regions Financial would each suffer an eight-hour attack starting with Capital One the next day. Even with the advanced warning, the financial institutions suffered outages, with Capital One's site frequently inaccessible during the eight-hour period.

"Some Capital One customers experienced intermittent online access due to a large volume of traffic going to the Website and servers," the bank said in a statement posted to its Web site. "Other banks have experienced similar issues in recent weeks due to targeted efforts designed to flood online systems, also known as a distributed denial-of-service attack.
