The attack consisted of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack consisting of collapsing the network of a company with an excess of information.

The New Zealand stock exchange suffered a new interruption this Friday, for the fourth consecutive day, due to a cyber attack that forced the opening of trading to be delayed for more than three hours.

According to the stock exchange operator, NZX Ltd in the square located in the New Zealand capital, Wellington, the problems that have occurred since Tuesday are caused by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, which consists of flooding the network of a company with such an excess of information that both its website and its systems collapse.

The market was unable to open today at 10.00 local time (22.00 GMT on Thursday) and trading started three hours later.

The New Zealand Stock Exchange lost one hour of trading on Tuesday, three on Wednesday and almost six hours on Thursday due to cyberattacks.

The New Zealand stock market operated by NZX is the scene of an annual trading volume of more than NZ $ 37 billion or the US $ 24.2 billion.
