Anonymous To Wall Street: We Will Take Down Stock Exchange On October 10th

PC Magazine:
The threat to "erase" the NYSE from the Internet was not explained, though in comments on the YouTube video, some speculated that Anonymous was planning a Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack on the public-facing website, similar to DDoS attacks the group has used to take down websites in the past. Others felt that would only be a minor setback for the NYSE and guessed that Anonymous was planning a larger attack, perhaps even an attempt to actually disable trading on the exchange.
