PBoC hit by suspected bitcoin hacker attack, website says

A hacker attack may have been responsible for disruptions to the central bank website since Wednesday afternoon, information website bit38.com said. The website could only be accessed intermittently during the period, China News Service reported, citing an unnamed employee. However, the bank did not confirm if the website had been attacked. Hackers linked to bitcoin, a digital currency under a government clampdown, may have staged the attack, bit38.com said.
