    A computer glitch halted trading on the New York Stock Exchange for more than two hours on Wednesday, but officials quickly discounted fears that it was the result of a cyberattack.

    The problems at the NYSE began at 11:32 a.m. ET and resulted in the exchange halting trading in all stocks as it attempted to work on the issue.

    The exchange didn't specify the nature of the problem beyond an "internal technical issue."

    "NYSE has temporarily suspended trading in all symbols," the market said in a message to traders. "All open orders will be cancelled."

    The stock exchange said it was not the result of a security breach.

    That was echoed by White House spokesman Josh Earnest, who said that President Obama had been briefed by his Homeland Security Advisor, Lisa Monaco, who told him there was no sign that malicious actors were to blame.
