This just in via IM from C-BLOC. Apperantly they've shut down some computers on Wall Street as part of their on going hacktivism in solidarity with the Anti-Bush protests. Here is their statement:

"We have successfully shut down several computer systems on Wall Street and in the NYSE in a direct action aimed at war profiteers, Bush supporters and companies invested in the Surveillance States of America. This action was brought to you courtesy of your friends at C-BLOC. Peace from da east."

Note: I have not seen anything in the corporate media about this but my source is reliable and it is typical that companies may not be reporting this because it exposes their vulnerablity and could drive down their stock or the market.
