CIA Web Site Goes Down, LulzSec Takes Credit - Arik Hesseldahl - News - AllThingsD

More site insecurities

Chances are no one is laughing at CIA HQ in Langley, Virginia. The site is for all intents and purposes the public face of the agency, so it’s not likely that any classified information is being taken or any sensitive communications disrupted, but attacking government Web sites is a federal crime under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and probably some other laws I’m not thinking of. Having already demonstrated that it had penetrated the servers of the U.S. Senate’s Web site, I’m assuming that LulzSec is already deep within that territory, knows it, and is wantonly demonstrating that it doesn’t care.
