Was London Stock Exchange Hit by Cyberattack?

People are asking because of an unexpected trading shutdown in the United Kinggdom. Iran has sophisticated cyberwar capabilities and good reason to disrupt the financial system of the superpower that assassinated Gen. Soleimani in Iraq.

The Iranian hackers work in conjunction with the Ministry of Security and Intelligence. (MOIS)

The U.K.’s Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, which monitors critical national infrastructure, including major financial trading platforms, is examining if the software code may have played a role in the outage. Officials are looking at time stamps affiliated with the code’s production, which could offer clues to its origin.

    And two others one,in Russian, showing DBTCA as in intermediary for VTB the

    other in English showing Payment Transfer Information DBTCA as an intermediary for VTB 24.

    If I haven’t mentioned this before ICIJ reported a response to queries from readers about what documents Comey had requested from them. They said at the time he had requested any document which included an Americans name and as a result of the ongoing investigation they would comment no further on anything related.

    Thanks Jeff for your time.

    I find this all very very interesting. Most all of these bastards are laundering money and need time to get out of their predicament.

    Too bad the paper trails will remain. It would seem to me lnow that it is just a matter of time until this bugg-a-boo jumps up and bites them all in the ass.

    Wait till then if you want to see some very real suffering by the masses.
