“There is no indication that malicious actors were involved” in the glitch that shut down the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, according to White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Earnest said that President Obama had been briefed, and that “effective communication” between private sector officials and public officials in charge of cybersecurity was taking place.

Although the current situation is not due to a cyberattack, Earnest asserted that the federal government’s “security posture is continually evolving to reflect the current threat environment.”
