    What do you think? Is this a hacker-originated attack, or is it just a coincidence?

    Considering this:

    I'm guessing the answer is YES.

      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

          Maybe the Leap Second finally caught up with them though I did read the Stock Exchange was going to add that second in tiny slices over the course of the day. Last time they added the Leap Second in 2012, there was some $17,000,000 (no typo) made by taking advantage of info released from Leap Second updated systems and the Stock Exchange that hadn't yet changed the time. Not bad money for the sake of a single SECOND.

            Yeah, and yet I somehow think that this is not the case here.

              This is very scary. Things like this should NOT happen to airlines, specifically.
