    The New Zealand stock exchange is being told it could be doing far more, to protect itself against the ongoing threat of cyber attacks

    The New Zealand stock exchange is being told it could be doing far more, to protect itself against the ongoing threat of cyber attacks


    The NZX has been brought down twice in 24 hours, by DDOS or Distributed Denial of Service attacks.

    Trading resumed on the exchange at 3pm yesterday, and the exchange is planning to open for normal trading at 10am today.

    But IT security expert Daniel Ayers says the NZX urgently needs to address its vulnerability, to reduce the chance of further attacks.

    He says DDOS attacks are difficult to protect against, but a basic issue in NZX's network has made it especially vulnerable.
