DDoS Attacks Halt NZ Exchange Trading for Third Day

New Zealand Exchange officials say the motive for the attacks is unclear.

A series of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have paused trading on the New Zealand Exchange (NZX) for the third consecutive day.

The attacks, said to have originated outside of the country, halted trading in stocks beginning Tuesday at 4 p.m. local time. This was followed by a halt in trading in debt and equity for most of Wednesday and Thursday, and a halt in derivatives trading beginning at 4 p.m. on Thursday.

NZX officials say the motive for the attacks is unclear.
