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.

What odds are you giving mr satan?
Isn’t Columbus Day a Holiday???? This could be funny.
That is what I thought.
Those hackers are not going to let a Federal holiday get in the way of their plans!
Good - an opportunity to throw a bunch of them in federal prison.
Is NYSE open on Columbus Day
Bond markets closed, stock market open. I’m on my way into work now. :-(
either way, who freaking cares? Cuz I’m in gold baby. bring the chaos. Bring it. bring it.
I’m not sure the NYSE can be taken down by hackers.
Interrupted and interfered with but as I understand it, there’s no real connection to the net.
all gold? Tsk tsk tsk

...and will launch a "raid" on the company's website on Monday, October 10!
Sorry, but a website is not bringing the NYSE down.
Too bad the NYSE is closed for business Monday, i.e. Columbus Day.
