The online collective Anonymous is disputing a YouTube video posted over the weekend that promises distributed denial-of-service attacks on Monday against the New York Stock Exchange. In a tweet from the AnonOps Twitter account, considered one of the most trusted sources of information from the group, there are no plans to hack Wall Street properties.
