Adding on to the ongoing Occupy Wall Street movement, the hacker group Anonymous has declared war on Wall Street.
In a creepy video posted to YouTube, the group has threatened to "erase" the New York Stock Exchange from the Internet on Monday, Oct. 10.
"On Oct. 10, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On Oct. 10, expect a day that shall never, ever be forgotten," the video states.
A spokesperson for the NYSE could not yet be reached, CNBC is reporting.
Here's the video:

Meanwhile, GlobalPost's senior correspondent in Southeast Asia Patrick Winn reports that China is getting in on the action, too.
Here's the money quote from Patrick's Rice Bowl blog post today:
The state-owned China Daily's English edition carried an editorial titled "U.S. Media Blackout of Protest is Shameful," which alleges that corporate media refuses to acknowledge the scope and scale of the demonstrations.
A New York-based China Daily editor writes: "Why have those journalists, who made their names covering various protests around the world, suddenly become silent in reporting the mass rally? That clearly does not match their enthusiasm to cover demonstrations in recent months in places such as North Africa and the Middle East."
