Well this is embarrassing.
HSBC's online banking services are suffering from yet another outage - and it looks like it's down to a cyber attack on the bank.
Customers complained this morning that they could not access their accounts online, with many complaining that the outage came just as their first pay day since Christmas arrived.
The bank tweeted: "HSBC UK internet banking was attacked this morning. We successfully defended our systems.
It added: "We are working hard to restore services, and normal service is now being resumed. We apologise for any inconvenience."

In a message on its website, HSBC added: "We'd like to apologise to all our customers for Online Banking being unavailable. We know how inconvenient this is and we are doing everything we can to rectify the problem. Please try later."
Unsurprisingly customers are not too impressed, particularly as this latest outage comes as hundreds of thousands of people rush to file their self-assessment tax forms online.
