Anonymous allegedly targeted the New York Stock Exchange

ABC News reports:

Anonymous, the loosely-organized group of computer hackers that has taken credit for many of the world’s most visible protests, has threatened to “erase” the New York Stock Exchange from the Internet today [10.10.2011].

The streets of downtown Manhattan have been crowded for several weeks now with members of the Occupy Wall Street movement, who say they’re protesting corporate greed. Last week an online message purportedly posted by Anonymous said the protest would spread to a hacking attack.

Wall Street shrugged off the threat this morning as the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose more than 250 points at the open.

The Stock Exchange opened and closed without incident.
