That's odd.  I was working on my Chase account on-line and had no problem accessing it this morning.  Everything seemed as usual.  I wonder if it affected all Chase banks and accounts.

Thanks for the post Knudsen.  I'm glad to see banks rehearsing their response to cyber attacks and since - as the article states clearly - they are not using live systems, but special software designed for such an exercise, no real systems or accounts would have been impacted during the simulation.
