From suspended stock exchange trading to grounded United flights — cybersecurity is the topic of the day.

From the Homeland Security Department stating the trading halt and grounded United Airlines flights were not malicious, and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) assuring it was not a "cyber breach" —
to conspiracy theorists or skeptics taking to Twitter —
"...due to 'technical issues.'" #NYSE http://t.co/MfqHJi9BfH · Cameron
one thing is certain — cybersecurity and cyberattacks are on everyone's minds.

Before trading resumed, the exchange floor looked empty, and before flights resumed, the airports were full of grounded passengers from the 4,900 impacted flights. Questions of "why" and "how" this happened are circulating. The NYSE said that it was caused by a new software rollout, which leaves IT professionals and the general public wondering why the stock exchange floor would open without the software being properly integrated, and if the words "glitch" or "coincidence" can really be used to describe what happened.
But until more detailed reports circulate, the Internet speculates.
