Banking giant HSBC apologizes for directing customers to porn site

Banking giant HSBC has apologised after a link on its Hong Kong website directed customers to a Chinese-language porn site.

“HSBC would like to apologise to the public for any inconvenience caused,” it said in the statement.

The British bank said it was not “in any way connected” to the site in question, which showed suggestive pictures of scantily clad women.

The link, which directed to an obsolete community award page that was taken over by the porn site, has been removed by HSBC. The bank added that its online operations are completely secure.
