The NASDAQ logo. The Nasdaq stock exchange said Saturday that hackers
got into one of its computer systems, but that there was no evidence
customer information or trading was compromised.
Through our normal security monitoring systems we detected
suspicious files on the US servers unrelated to our trading systems,”
said Frank DeMaria, spokesman for Nasdaq OMX Group Inc.
“The
files were immediately removed and at this point there is no evidence
that any… customer information was accessed or acquired by hacker,”
DeMaria’s statement continued.
Nasdaq’s trading platform operates
separately, “and at no point was any of Nasdaq OMX’s operated or
serviced trading platforms compromised,” he said.
The company did not indicate when the suspicious files were discovered.
The US Department of Justice was notified and is investigating. A spokesman for the FBI declined to comment to AFP on Saturday.
