Anonymous Hacker "Havittaja" Bring-down CIA & Department of Justice

Anonymous Hacker "Havittaja" Bring-down CIA & Department of Justice Website

Hacker from infamous Anonymous claimed to take down the official website of U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) & Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Here also hackers followed their older tradition by engaging massive denial of service (DoS) attack to send the target offline. Due to large number of traffic CIA website was inaccessible for 45 mins. A Brazilian hacker code named "Havittaja" took responsibility of this attack by saying saying it was done for the "lulz", which refers to the popular online abbreviation "for laughs".

We have seen similar attack on CIA in last February, there also Anonymous took responsibility of that cyber attack and also claimed that this is yet another biggest denial of service attack of this year. We would also like to refresh your memory while saying not only Anonymous but also a hacker group named "CyberZeist" has revealed some classified information regarding the official website of CIA. He also exposed server details, DNS information, administrator login panel and so on. Even the hacker group leaked certain information about five undercover CIA agent's including real name, age, full postal address, banking details, credit card information, email-id & passwords. If you dig the history we will find that in 2011 Lulzsec hit CIA & SOCA with massive DDoS attack which immediately sent the website offline for a certain period of time.
If you talk about Department of Justice then we need to dig the 1st page of Operation Megaupload where hacktivist shutdown the official website of DOJ & FBI
