Anonymous Hacker Group Vows to Attack NYSE in Support of Wall Street Protests

Wednesday, 05 Oct 2011 12:50 PM

A collective hacker group sympathizing with those protesting outside of the New York Stock Exchange and elsewhere says it plans to wipe out the exchange's presence on the Internet.

"On Oct. 10, the NYSE will be erased from the Internet. On Oct. 10, expect a day that shall never, ever be forgotten," the collective hacker group known as Anonymous says in a digital voice recording addressed to the media.

The voice did not say if the attack would target the exchange's web site or electronic functions that rely on Internet technology.

The voice says Anonymous seeks to punish what it sees as perpetrators of greed and blames the government for incubating the alleged indulgence.

"We witness the government enforcing the laws that punish the 99 percent while allowing the 1 percent to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people."

"We have observed this same government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street's abuses. This government, who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street, has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis," the voice says, according to PC Magazine.

Occupy Wall Street, the demonstration movement gaining traction across the United States, is starting to enjoy more organized backing, namely from unions.

"These young people on Wall Street are giving voice to many of the problems that working people in America have been confronting over the last several years," Larry Hanley, international president of the Amalgamated Transit Union, which has 20,000 member in the New York area, tells CNN.

"These young people are speaking for the vast majority of Americans who are frustrated by the bankers and brokers who have profited on the backs of hard-working people."
