Not sure how many times these needs be said, but anything shown on that map is last hop, not point of origin. If we get super conspiracy mode in full, lots of possibilities emerge.

Counter attack by China, playing foes against each other silent dominator... who knows.

Watch that map for a minute. I see big firepower from euro hitting Moscow. Could that be the source of the global botnet hitting st louis? truth be told, not a person on these forums has a clue.

Curiously, spheres over Moscow without any flings in or out. That's not happening anywhere else. My bet would be us military hitting moscow as source of enemy botnet, mostly hidden without critical analysis.

now they are saying the SEC is "monitoring the situation", and we have passed the one hour mark......maybe the FBI, and the SEC can find a new "router" that works....(WINK, WINK)

I'm betting dry run or hacker and a router can be hacked.

Not saying it is likely, but if all this cyber stuff going on today (and crap with Greece / China) is the pre-cursor to a crash, I plan on stocking up on the cheap, pee-water beer for trade to all my friends without taste when the post dollar crash apocalypse is upon us. That and gallons and gallons of cheap vodka from the plastic bottles, tobacco, .22lr ammo, and maybe things like aspirin and Tylenol. (Regular H20 and good beer ain't being given to anyone but family).

Then again, if the collapse doesn't happen in my lifetime I can at least have some ridiculous parties when the various stocks meet the end of their shelf lives...

Have no idea what is in ST Louis worth attacking but it must be something because every time I watch that map, it is getting attacked.

St. Louis is a major hub for just about every Internet backbone provider. An attack there is the first point of entry for any other major node/customer.

It's like having to land on the beech in order to get your troops to the city.

Ah, thanks for that. I have been wondering why it is always a target, now I know...

Is it possible to hack a router and ruin it?

They probably messed something up trying to fix something earlier.
Take them a while to redo what they messed up.

Sure, you can poison the tables. A single router should not affect much when we're dealing with enterprise/backbone networks. Newer protocols will divert around faults, and not be further infected.

I think given the systems effected and to the extent of systems effects, this very well may have been a hack. I know where i work we have bank and FSI data we manage and our firewall has been getting pounded on all day as well.

Seen something about major Chinese stockholders being forbidden from selling for something like 6 months. So if any of them gets a margin call, and can't sell their Chinese holdings to meet it, wouldn't they have to liquidate foreign holdings?

Something doesn't seem right with three major glitches happening nearly simultaneously.

NYSE just released a statement that they chose to shut down trading due to internal computer issues and state emphatically that this is not a hack.

It s most def a hack or deliberate shutdown, but not due to "computer issues." That's total BS.

You would think they would say it will take a while to fix this.Maybe someone covering up their mistake.

Chinese markets are having basically the equivalent to the 29' crash - I'm no market expert outside of my 401k, but I would assume that they would have plenty of reasons to slow/halt international trading.
