Terrible online banking website I've never seen before

Hi BankWest, 


I was able to log into your online banking last Thursday, but not today. Around 5 hours ago today, I reset my security code online and I received an email saying it’s changed successfully. After that, the nightmare starts. As you can see below, the error prevents me to login. I don’t think it will recover itself. I have never seen this error anywhere else.
