NYSE website hobbled by outages

San Francisco - A company that monitors website response times says The New York Stock Exchange's website was hobbled twice on Monday, possibly the result of computer attacks.

A San Mateo-based company called Keynote Systems Inc says the NYSE website experienced a one-minute outage around 15:30, then a half-hour outage about two hours later.

 The loosely organised Anonymous hacking group has threatened an attack on the NYSE as part of anti-Wall Street protests. Some protesters have objected because of the impression the hack would leave about the movement as a whole.

Trading operations at the NYSE were not affected.
