I can't get into too many details, but I have family very much in the know that have elevated my concern level quite significantly about what has been going on today.
I think folks should start looking at their personal situations i.e. banking and investments and start making some moves to hedge what they have. Also - it can not hurt to prepare some things like food / water / supplies to last you for a while in the event that things do get really bad with the economy...

Everything is normal except for the China part. It's just a constant bombardment. I only stare at these from time to time, so maybe these none-stop attacks are normal.
Trading was halted for more than two hours on the New York Stock Exchange floor Wednesday after an internal technical issue was detected – which then set off speculation that a cyber-glitch at United Airlines and a temporary online outage at the Wall Street Journal newspaper were connected. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said President Obama had been briefed on the glitch that took out trading on the floor of the NYSE by White House counterterrorism and homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco and chief of staff Denis McDonough. He also said despite indications that it was not a cyber-breach, the administration was “keenly aware of the risk that exists in cyber space right now.”

Just remember what Norse is. It is a cyber security firm that uses "honey pots" to attract cyber attacks to study them and how to defeat them. Certain places see high activity all the time, places like St Louis. These would be some of Norse honey pots attracting attacks. So what you see on those maps is not always what is going on.
