Anonymous hackers based in Asia took down the NSA.gov website Friday evening in apparent response to the latest relevations that the National Security Agency monitored the personal phones of 35 world leaders.

 

 

As of this posting the NSA site was still timing out when attempting to load. Related government sites such as the CIA’s were still working.

Maybe they tried putting it on the healthcare.gov server to fool the hackers.

Wait until they hack insurance policies purchased on the Exchanges. Maybe they'll get into the files that track deductibles and change them to show they've all been met. Now there's some populist hackmanship!

how big does this attack need to be to take out the NSA website? PR aside, is this really a big deal? funny as hell, but is this site really a biggie?

LOL And we worry about NSA's surveillance practices. I guess the worse thing that could happen is the "metadata" would fall into the wrong hands. Whoever that might be...
