LULZ Security Hacks CIA Website!

“Tango down – cia.gov – for the lulz,” the group, which had earlier claimed responsibility for hacking into the websites of the U.S. Senate, Sony, Nintendo and Fox News, wrote on its Twitter feed.

“While some people think this is a fun game that can also help point out corporate security weaknesses, the truth is that companies and innocent customers are – in the worst cases – having their personal data exposed,” Sophos senior technology consultant Graham Cluley said.

“There are responsible ways to inform a business that its website is insecure, or it has not properly protected its data – you don’t have to put innocent people at risk. What’s disturbing is that so many internet users appear to support LulzSec as it continues to recklessly break the law.”
