The HKEx online news service was attacked again Thursday after Wednesday’s half-day suspension of trading of shares of eight companies, said the HKEx.

According to Charles Li chief executive of HKEx, the attacks throughout the day were successfully blocked by HKEx’s IT department. Other systems were not under attack or affected.

He added that the HKEx will widen its information distribution, in the wake of yesterday’s incident.
