    Anonymous Threatens To "Erase" NYSE From Internet

    Anonymous Threatens To "Erase" NYSE From Internet

    “We choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange,” says a computerized voice in the first video, addressed to the media. “We will show the world that we are true to our word. On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.”

    Great! So they'll damage ordinary people with money in IRA's, mutual and pension funds too. Terrific. (If it's a real threat).
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    It won't stop the exchange, just slow down online info until the IT guys can put it back up...probably in less than 24 hours (they have backups you know). And a smart hacker would say nothing until after the fact.

    Re: Anonymous Threatens To "Erase" NYSE From Internet

    There are some many folks posing as anonymous now, it's not even funny. In some ways, I support some of the things they have done, in the same vein I support some of the things wikileaks has done. But in others, it just smacks of angst ridden kids living in the parents basements, me vs the world sorta thing. If Anonymous really wanted to affect change in the way american industry operates, their job is actually MUCH simpler. If I were an anonymous hacker, I'd keep on going after the emails, like they did with Bank of America. THAT rallies people to their cause, if they have one...

    Investors are an easily spooked lot. So it's not the threat of losing data, but just the threat of an attack in general that can cause a panicky sell off, and yes, a smart hacker wouldn't say anything before doing it. But then, as I just demonstrated, they don't actually have to wipe the market out on the internet in order to harm Wall St.
