CUSTOMERS OF Halifax ShareXpress, the online dealing service which was suspended on Friday over fears of a security breach are being contacted today by the company in an attempt to ensure that accounts are in order before restarting the service. Halifax said yesterday that it had identified the source of the fault following a comprehensive audit over the weekend and eliminated it. But, further testing was still required before reinstating the service. The problem came as a severe embarrassment to Halifax which is investing heavily in turning itself into a leading Internet player.
