The Shape of Greater Internet Things to Come on Hubs

The New York Stock Exchange has halted all trading of listed stocks today at 0851 PDT, 1150 EDT. The NYSE, owned by Intercontinental Exchange, has blamed technical gremlins.

Is a technical gremlin, a zeroday vulnerability exploiter/export/extorter? Or is that more of a software glitch chasing trade for a hardware patch? Collapsing markets need to know. Although what, if anything, can be done about such novel things is certainly unclear and quite a cause for real concern in any and all virtual market places with open and closing cyber spaces.
