The hacker group that claimed responsibility for a string of bank website outages has suspended their cyberattacks.

The halt was due to the removal of a YouTube video, which the hacker group found religiously offensive. The group will pause its distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks so that other copies of the video may be removed from YouTube.
