Inland Revenue, MetService, New Zealand Post, ANZ and Kiwibank were also hit by what is believed to be a co-ordinated denial of service attack, but all appear to be back online.

The government's internet security agency, CERT NZ, said yesterday it was monitoring the situation and working with affected parties.
