Anon's Greatest Hit So Far': Hackers Take Credit for CIA Website Crash

News

“Why can’t they be stopped? Because security technologies have not kept up with the extent of the vulnerabilities that exist.”

Just last Friday, the hacker collective Anonymous claimed victory for gaining access a private FBI conference call -- as well as taking down several websites. Here's today's deja vu moment: Anonymous has accepted credit for downing the Central Intelligence Agency's website and hacking personal information from several Alabama government sites.

RT reports that the CIA's website appeared to be down just after 3 p.m. this afternoon -- at the time of this posting, it still remains offline. RT states that it is most likely a DDoS attack where the hackers overload the server causing the site to crash. Gizmodo writes "If this is what it looks like, it could be Anon's greatest hit so far."
