ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

If you've had some trouble accessing your online bank account lately, you aren't alone

Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, U.S. Bancorp and PNC have been hit by cyber attacks that have caused Internet blackouts and delays on online banking sites.

The sites are functioning now.

 A group called "Izz ad-din Al qassam said they would attack the financial industry in retaliation to the anti-Islam film that sparked protests around the world.

Some folks say they are so fed up with hackers they don't even have an account set up.

"I keep cash because I can keep it on me and I don't worry about people finding it online," said Matt Deal.

They weren't able to steal any money, but experts worry about future attacks.
