Subject: Financial firms warned of Qaeda cyber attack

>>From the Reuters article:
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government warned American private financial services on Thursday of an al Qaeda call for a cyber attack against online stock trading and banking Web sites beginning on Friday, a source said."

Reportedly DHS confirmed an alert had been distributed but said there was no reason to believe the threat was credible.
