The attacks have mostly been DDoS, hoping to disrupt bank's consumer websites or corporate networks.
Most recently, the consumer sites for Chase and Bank of America were down for over 24 hours thanks to such atatcks.
Supposedly, the attacks are "payback" for the banks enforcing sanctions against Iran.
Iran has openly noted it wants to create a "cyber army" that can hack Western nations. It is unclear whether the attacks on the banks came directly from the Iranian government or citizens.
All U.S. agencies declined to comment, as did the banks.
