Zim stock exchange site hacked

2011-08-05 10:35

Harare – Computer hackers have attacked the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE) website, prompting authorities at the bourse to shut down the site.

“Our website has been targeted by hackers and the last incident was on Wednesday,” chief executive Emmanuel Munyukwi said.

“We have taken it offline. Our hosts have recommended to us that the site is no longer safe and they notified us about this yesterday.”

“They have also recommended that we need a new website,” he added.

Munyukwi said the attack affected traders monitoring performance on the bourse with 79 listed companies.

ZSE does not conduct trading on the internet.

Early this year hackers attacked the website of Zimbabwe’s finance ministry.
