LulzSec takes down the CIA website

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2011

What is it with hackers lately? The hacking group, LulzSec or Lulz Security, announced that they hacked the CIA last night on its twitter feed, saying “Tango down – cia.gov – for the lulz”. Apparently the site was only down for a short time, maybe an hour.

If they took any info they aren’t talking about it. If there is any motive behind the attack, they haven’t said so. Some have even speculated that Lulzsec is really a US government sponsored false flag operation designed to encourage lawmakers into granting more surveillance and control over the internet. It also might just be mindless fun to these hackers.
