The attack was carried out on Tuesday during a holiday in Greece and caused a disruption of the bank's website for about six hours, Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported, based on a video posted on social media by the international hacker activist group Anonymous.

It is not the first time that the Anonymous has targeted Greek financial institutions. The Greek Financial Ministry and other ministries have been targeted in the past.

The Anonymous said Tuesday's attack was against "global corrupt financial institutions", and more attacks will follow over the next month against central banks and other financial organizations from the United States, Brazil to India.
