    United was back up and running before the NYSE stopped trading. WSJ was back up by 12 PM EST, and NSYE resumed trading at 3PM.

    Well, we can't. Didn't we off shore all those jobs?
    Should have showed them some love in a more timely fashion, me thinks. You think business if re-thinking that decision?

    Alternatively, if you're in CT mode, trading was halted because of international issues and before the market tanks and technology is a convienent cover story.
    Yeah, I was thinking about that aspect of it (if I'm reading your post correctly).

    If it was a cyber attack, I certainly wouldn't be giving the attackers any information that I knew it was an attack and would blame it on the technical glitch or code bug or whatever. Deny them any information in the least about, how it was detected, from where I thought it was coming, what damage it caused, and what I did to remediate the risk, would be my position.

    Lots of attacks aimed at Kirksville, St. Louis, and Seattle, US at 750pm CST. What's so significant in those three cities that hackers from China are so interested in? Over 420 attacks coming from mainland China currently. Amazingly persistent buggers.

    Apparently the way the company works is that they set up monitoring software on their clients' systems and aggregate data about attacks on those systems, and on a number of honeypot servers they set up. That's what they show on the map- attacks on those systems. They are headquartered in St. Louis, so that's probably just where most their honeypots are set up. Probably they just happen to have more customers in Kirksville and Seattle than most places.

    If you have ever run a webserver, if you look through the logs, you'll see at least dozens of attempts a day to access a weird port or grab some suspicious file that doesn't exist. Maybe in a period of 10 seconds, you'll see 100 attempts in a row from the same IP to access a list of files like /admin, /admin.jsp, /admin.asp, /admin.html, /admin.htm, and so on. Or, you'll see a string of connection attempts at 150 commonly used ports that you don't happen to have anything running on. They're just running scripts that scan all over the place for well known vulnerabilities. They aren't necessarily an "attack" like you might think of some hacker in the basement of a military complex plotting out an evil plan. Presumably nearly all of them are dudes sitting at home at their computer running scripts they downloaded from the Internet that don't really intend to do anything other than see if they can find a place to store some porn or whatever. I'm thinking this company just aggregates the list of that kind of activities from the servers it is installed on. So, what we're really seeing is probably more of an indication of how many customers they have and where they are.

    All that said though, it is really cool anyways It'd be a lot cooler if a statistically representative geographic representation of servers around the world were being monitored.

    Thank Rush for bringing that one to our attention.

    I wonder if server farms in those cities are affecting the rest of the country?

    So.

    We are to believe that United, NYSE, WSJ all had glitches the same day? I think getting eaten by a shark is more likely....

    Plus Anonymous seemed to know something was up prior to it happening. Wierd that.
