ATMs in Tokyo are among those affected, a spokeswoman said. She declined to say which services were affected as the lender is still investigating the matter, reports Reuters.

The core banking unit of Mizuho Financial Group said that it would update customers on its website.

Japan’s third-largest lender by assets has a history of system troubles spanning more than a decade. It had a costly “fat finger” keyboard error at its securities arm in 2005 and suffered a breakdown at its ATMs after Japan’s devastating 2011 earthquake, unlike its rivals.
