Hackers claim credit for taking down CIA website

Washington, Tue, 24 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 24 (ANI): An Internet hacking group named UGNazi has claimed responsibility for bringing down America's Central Intelligence Agency website.

The cia.gov site was unavailable yesterday, allegedly due to a Denial of Service (DDS)-attack.

The hack was initially claimed by Anonymous after the group tweeted, 'CIA TANGO DOWN'.

But later Anonymous admitted that fellow hacktivists UGNazi had instead brought down the site, The Telegraph reports.

The CIA did not confirm the attack but said they were 'looking into these reports'.

Hacktivists also reportedly attacked the website for the United Nations, the paper said.

According to a CNN report, the group said the attack was in response to the state of Alabama's 'recent racist legislation in an attempt to punish immigrants as criminals'. (ANI)
