    Default Anonymous Vows to Attack NYSE

    Anonymous, a group of self-styled hacker-activists behind attacks on corporate and government websites, vowed to support the Occupy Wall Street protests by erasing the New York Stock Exchange “from the Internet” on Oct. 10.

    The group posted a video message on YouTube declaring war on the world’s largest stock exchange in retaliation for the mass arrests of Wall Street protesters, and posted a link to the video on one of several Anonymous Twitter feeds.



    The two-minute message didn’t elaborate on the threat or whether it referred only to an attack on the NSYE website, which would have no effect on trading.

    Anonymous has launched several so-called directed denial of service attacks on websites over several months, including actions in December against the sites of MasterCard Inc. (MA) and Visa Inc. (V) Members of the group use specialized software to launch the attacks, which can slow or crash the site for a short period of time, according to court documents.

    Richard Adamonis, a spokesman for NYSE Euronext (NYX), which operates the exchange, said the company doesn’t comment on rumors or security matters.

    NYSE.com includes corporate information, press releases, trading notices, the company’s rules and bylaws, and access to services for companies whose stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The trading systems are run separately through a secure data center in Mahwah, New Jersey.

    Stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange trade on almost all U.S. exchanges and other systems where investors can buy and sell securities, including electronic communications networks, broker-dealers and dark pools, or private venues that match orders without displaying prices in advance.

    This is so not good. Or is it? No, it's not.

    Just a bunch of whiny entitlements raised by helicopter parents wanting their peace of the pie by doing nothing for it...
