SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A company that monitors website response times says The New York Stock Exchange’s website was hobbled twice Monday, possibly the result of computer attacks.

A San Mateo-based company called Keynote Systems Inc. says the NYSE website experienced a one-minute outage around 3:30 p.m. Eastern, then a half-hour outage about two hours later. The loosely organized Anonymous hacking group has threatened an attack on the NYSE as part of anti-Wall Street protests. Some protesters have objected because of the impression the hack would leave about the movement as a whole.

NYSE spokesman Ray Pellecchia says an investigation by the stock exchange showed no disruptions to its website.

Trading operations at the NYSE were not affected.
