Area bank's online service goes down; bombards some customers with hundreds of e-mails

UPDATE: The bank reports online started coming back up for some users shortly after 9 p.m.; all customers should have access by tomorrow morning.

Rockland Trust reports its techs are working as hard as they can to get its Web site and online-banking service back online after it crashed last night. Without getting into the specifics of what went wrong, the bank adds:

This was not and is not a security issue. You're information and accounts are safe and secure.

Meanwhile, some customers are now reporting they are getting hundreds of e-mails with a security code they never requested:
