Both the New York Stock Exchange and United Airlines are shut down, both giving cryptic explanations related to technology.
"NYSE/NYSE MKT has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols. Additional information will follow as soon as possible."
"The halt came amid a broad selloff in shares that was spurred by a deepening decline in China's stock market. It's unclear what's causing the disruption. Representatives of the exchange couldn't immediately be reached for comment."

The hack of Hacking Team, on the surface, and according to the world's cybersecurity press, appears to be a uniquely monumental event that threatens to bring down a well-known name in the mass surveillance industry.
The known fact that the company created a backdoor to its own products, and the backdoor's details have now been published, renders all of those products useless and obsolete.
It additionally threatens the security integrity of all of the company's clients. Those backdoors could provide hackers with the identity of every covert agency's targets, and the dates, times, means and results of every investigation.
You can bet that prior to the release of the hacked information, every agency using these products had already been hacked. This bodes ill for law enforcement and covert agencies."

(1 of 3) The issue we are experiencing is an internal technical issue and is not the result of a cyber breach.
Homeland Security Dept. says there's no sign of malicious activity at #NYSE or with earlier United Airlines outage. http://cnnmon.ie/1NOIshg
