DDoS Attack Sends Hong Kong Stock Exchange Back to Paper

TechWorld: For the past two days, the Hong Kong stock exchange (HKEx) news website has been the target of sustained denial of service (DDoS) attacks that have made it difficult for investors to access the site. In order to comply with international requirements for transparency, the exchange has been forced to take out newspaper ads listing company results and other information. In addition, the exchange is communicating with traders by e-mail and is using a bulletin board website.

Stock trading on several companies, including HKEx itself, had to be suspended due to the attacks. There is no word on who might be behind the attacks.
