Earlier today everything blew up. Multiple major companies suffered from crippling ‘technical glitches’ this morning. The affected companies include:
- New York Stock Exchange
- The Wall Street Journal
- United Airlines
United Airlines suffered from problems with its reservation system and made an apology to travelers.
The NYSE was forced to halt trading until 3:15pm.
According to the White House none of these troubles were caused by cyber terrorism. American Airlines blames a faulty router and the NYSE – according to reports – may have been due to a systems upgrade. The result of the NYSE issues has caused a spike in cybersecurity companies.
