Hacktivist group Anonymous, which is currently marching along side the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, is planning a cyber-attack on the New York Stock Exchange’s website.
The hacker group posted a video on YouTube yesterday saying the attack on the NYSE’s website will take place on October 10 at 3:30 p.m. EST. [via NetNet]
“The NYSE shall be erased from the Internet,” the digital voice says. “Expect a day that shall never ever be forgotten.”
The Department of Homeland Security has warned financial firms to remain vigilant against a possible cyber security threat posed by Anonymous, the Post reported.
