Anonymous Hackers Call For Protest At New York Stock Exchange After NYSE, United Airlines And WSJ Alleged Hackings: 'Flood Wall Street'

To follow the Anonymous Twitter account @YourAnonNews means you're joining the 1.44 million people who already follow the account. And on a day when United Airlines grounds a significant number of planes, affecting millions of passengers — and the NYSE halts trading — one begins to pay a lot more attention to the hacktivists named Anonymous. They've already issued an alert on Wednesday, July 8, that states they are calling for a protest at the NYSE.

#Anonymous is calling for a protest today at the New York Stock Exchange. Flood Wall Street at: 5PM EDT!
They've also warned folks about some kind of press release coming about Greece later today, therefore turning on mobile notifications for the Anonymous Twitter account is likely a good idea for journalists and all those concerned.Meanwhile, most folks are pointing to Anonymous "predicting" the NYSE failure — with a previous tweet that all but warned about trouble coming for the NYSE.Anonymous also had fun pointing to a classic scene from The Office called "Stay f****** calm!" that featured hapless boss Michael Scott running around like a chicken with his head cut off.

As reported by the Inquisitr, cyber attacks could be the cause of recent troubles had by United Airlines, the Wall Street Journal and the NYSE. Three major industries hit with supposed computer issues on the same day -- without many details given -- is bringing out the conspiracy theorists indeed.

United Airlines blamed a computer issue -- not necessarily a cyber attack -- for their decision to temporarily ground all their plans. This caused major disruptions that are expected to last into Thursday.

The NYSE suspended trading after a four-hour outage, reported CNN Money.

Salon called the fact that the NYSE, Wall Street Journal, and United Airlines all suffered computer problems on the same day a suspicious glitch indeed.
