first_imgThe rampage of LulzSec continues with another high-profile attack happening yesterday evening. This time the target wasn’t an MMO like the recent Eve Online and League of Legends attacks, instead LulzSec went after the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).The attack was successful with the CIA website for the most part going offline. However, it’s unlikely any sensitive information was found on the public CIA web servers. The targeting of CIA was most likely more just to embarrass the intelligence agency for having less than intelligent website security.Although it may have caused a few more lols for the members of LulzSec, targeting such a high-profile government agency may in the end backfire. This move will have angered some higher ups in the CIA who are now no doubt trying to figure out who this group is.

Or is it just a case that no one cares enough to go after them?last_img read more
