Hackers Attack CIA Website

These hackers just keep getting bolder: The CIA’s website went down on Wednesday night after a cyberattack by Lulz Security, the same group that has recently gone after PBS, Sony, and the U.S. Senate. The CIA’s website could not be accessed after the attack; there is no evidence, however, that any sensitive data has been compromised. "All they're doing is saying 'Look how good we are,'" says Jeffrey Carr, an expert on cyberwarfare. "These guys are literally in it for embarrassment, to say 'your security is crap.'"
