"The CIA's public website experienced technical issues that caused it to respond slowly for a short time yesterday evening," a spokeswoman told Politico. "Those issues are resolved." The CIA said there was no actual intrusion into their system. Rather, the site was hit with a distributed denial of service attack—a flood of traffic that overwhelmed the CIA's servers. Thing is, Lulzsec launched the attack in the first place to impress a hater who derided them for their reliance on distributed denial of service attacks—which can be launched with the press of a button—instead of "real" hacking.
