Was NADAQ hit by a Cyber Attack? $5.7 trillion locked up as Trading Halts for over 3 Hours
from Off Grid Survival:
So far this week, it looks like Hackers were able to take down the entire Google and Amazon Networks, and now it looks like they may have penetrated our Stock Markets.
Late Thursday afternoon, trading on the Nasdaq mysteriously came to a screeching halt. For more than 3 hours the Stock Market was down, locking up over $5.7 trillion. The unexplained halt in trading, to which we still have not received an explanation to what really happened, halted trading for the tech industry’s biggest names, including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon.com and Cisco Systems . The five companies have a combined market cap of more than $1 trillion.
After seeing what USA Today is describing as a possible Hacker Attack, and watching the major attacks earlier this week, I believe it is more important than ever to make sure you’re prepared for what may be coming.
