Cyber-security expert Greg Keeley has said that North Korea are taking credit for the recent “technical glitch” (cyber-attack) at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that occurred on Wednesday.
“For the administration to come out so hard and so fast and say this was not an attack I think is disingenuous… This is a major attack and for us to bury our head in the sand is very troubling“, Keeley warned.
Mainstream media website Gawker also took note of the odd “glitches” on Wednesday, in an article which suggests that what happened wasn’t a mere coincidence:

ITEM: The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading today after its computerized trading system mysteriously stopped working.
