Hackers Will Take Down the Stock Exchange on Monday, or Maybe Not

Hackers Will Take Down the Stock Exchange on Monday, or Maybe Not: Anarcho-Doritologist hacker collective has declared war on the New York Stock Exchange and will launch a “raid” on the company’s website on Monday, October 10! Or is “Operation Invade Wall Street” a “fake planted operation”? Or maybe it doesn’t really matter either way.

If you buy the video (which, if it’s a “plant,” is convincingly self-serious), Anonymous‘ plan is essentially the same as the one that briefly took down PayPal and MasterCard: Convince a bunch of people to download and run a program that will effect a distributed denial of service attack on the target, in this case the NYSE website. It’s called “Operation Invade Wall Street,” and will happen on October 10.
