Us Financial System Under Attack?

Recommended Posts

The NYSE is closed currently for technical issues. It's been down for 30 minutes. Earlier today a popular stock blogging site was taken down and the United Airlines computer system was taken down leading to flights being grounded. Now the Wall Street Journal site is under attack.

Authorities are saying they are not connected, but it seems very odd for all this to happen at the same time? A coordinated DNOS attack perhaps?

AMERICA UNDER CYBER-ATTACK? New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal fall victim to hackers

The New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal have all fallen victim to a massive cyber attack which appears to be targeting the US. The NYSE's website says 'additional information will follow as soon as possible.'

Neither is the Wail.

I can tell you all the denials are total b0110cks.

I work for a fairly large US firm, and we have had issues the last few days - to the extent we have had to put a walled garden around some of our data.

There is a massive cyber war going on right now. Not sure who the participants are, but there are definitely state sponsored participants involved.

#Anonymous posted on twitter last night something about NYSE having a bad day today. There was a protest planned outside the NYSE at 5.00pm today. A Popular hashtag today is #floodwallstreet. Wether or not they are responsible or attention hijacking I've no idea.

How convenient that the back office systems happened to go down with a technical issue just at the time the markets looked in danger of plunging..... <_<

Suspending the markets to thwart an incipient crash is so ham-fisted and shows weakness on the part of the authorities - a 'technical issue' is so much more innocuous and you can spin it to blame whoever you want if you pass it off as hacking. Only a matter of time before the evil Russkies get blamed I reckon.
