The site of the CIA victim of hackers LulzSec

The website of the CIA (cia. gov), the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, has not been accessible for several hours Wednesday night. Hackers grouped under the name of Lulz Security (LulzSec) announced having hacked. Within minutes of the claim, posted on Twitter about midnight, access to the site was broken.

Later that evening, the connections were sporadic. Lulz Security has become known in recent weeks claiming attacks against groups Sony and Nintendo. The group also claimed responsibility for attacks against the United States Senate, the public television channel PBS, and an organization working with the federal police (FBI) InfraGard.

It would probably not do the same with the intrusion attempt on systems in the International Monetary Fund (IMF), revealed this weekend, or even with the foiled the attack last month by the armament group Technology and Lockheed Martin, the leading provider of the Pentagon.
