    I follow 'El Periódico' for news in Spain and this popped up. El Periódico has reported an hour ago that a worldwide cyber attack has affected banks and companies alike.

    And now, just within 3 minutes they've showed that Spanish banks are amongst those too.

    What? Banks are bad!
    Did you knows, it was illegal to lend someone money and make a profit out of it? Banks do that! I say fuck 'em

    Yeah, some Russian companies (including Sberbank, one of the largest banks in Russia) were affected too, but it was, like, 3 weeks ago or so (?)

    The money of the people could be at risk here and that's what concerns me, as a customer myself.

    Think I'll try to stick to credit cards but then even that's hard to do with every card/online purchase, if I were to take all the money from my bank account.

    exactly... the people who are dumb enough to neglect computer safety should suffer...
    sadly the costumers may get affected...
