Time Magazine is reporting that the NYSE shutdown is due to issues from a failed system upgrade that happened overnight. The system upgrade did not go as planned, and disrupted trading from the beginning of the day, according to a Time source.
Update: 12:42 PM:
The Wall Street Journal’s website now redirects to a modified home page. A header reads, “WSJ.com is having technical difficulties.” No further explanation is provided.
Update, 12:34 PM:
The NYSE has issued a Tweet stating that the problem is a technical issue, and is not the result of a cyber attack:
“The issue we are experiencing is an internal technical issue and is not the result of a cyber breach.”

Trading on the New York Stock Exchange has been halted Wednesday morning, due to an unknown technical glitch with the exchange’s computer systems.
In addition to the NYSE outage, the website of the Wall Street Journal has also crashed, presumably under the weight of traffic coming looking for information about NYSE being offline.
