LulzSec claims responsibility for CIA.gov outage

LulzSec (Lulz Security) is on the road again and now on CIA homepage.

LulzSec did take down the Website briefly probably via a DDoS attack Wednesday afternoon.

“LulzSec, the hacking and prankster collective that has attacked the US Senate, Sony, and the Fox and PBS television networks, has struck again, claiming it was behind an assault that took down the website for the Central Intelligence Agency.”

LulzSec claimed responsibility for the brief and only partial outage, writing in a Twitter post: “Tango down – cia.gov – for the lulz.

A spokswoman from CIA tells to Press :

“The computer mischief appeared to be targeting the CIA’s public website, which does not include classified data and has no impact on the CIA’s operation. ”

So all big companys be a ware of Lulzsec and there hacker pranks
