Westpac banking site shutdown

Westpac Bank's Internet banking site was shutdown at 9am this morning as a result of "technical difficulties with the host server", company spokesman David Lording told Computerworld.

He said the problem was rectified in just over two hours and the site returned to normal at 11.15am.

Westpac has more than 435,000 Internet banking customers and last year outsourced its IT operations to IBM Global Services Australia with Telstra providing telecommunication services.

The $4.3 billion deal is for a period of 10 years.
