Nasdaq Suffers Security Breach
PRIVACY—U.S.February 7, 2011
Nasdaq OMX Group says it found suspicious files on its U.S. computer servers, Banking Business Review reports. Nasdaq says it found malware at the end of last year and alerted forensic groups and U.S. law officials and that the FBI and Department of Justice are now investigating. The malware was pointed at Nasdaq's Web-based program, where about 5,000 companies store documents for board members, the report states. Nasdaq deleted the malware and says no customer information appears to have been compromised as a result of the security breach. Law enforcement officials have not yet issued a statement on the case.
