Report: Hackers penetrated Nasdaq computers

Federal authorities are investigating repeated intrusions into the computer network that runs the Nasdaq stock exchange, according to a Wall Street Journal report that cited people familiar with the matter.

The intrusions did not compromise the tech-heavy exchanges trading platform, which executes investors trades, but it was unknown which other sections of the network were accessed, according to the report.

“So far, [the perpetrators] appear to have just been looking around,” one person involved in the Nasdaq matter told the Journal.
