The NSA website is down this afternoon in an apparant DDoS Attack.
Russia Today reported:

The website for the United States National Security Agency suddenly went offline Friday.

NSA.gov has been unavailable globally as of late Friday afternoon, and Twitter accounts belonging to people loosely affiliated with the Anonymous hacktivism movement have suggested they are responsible.

Twitter users @AnonymousOwn3r and @TruthIzSexy both were quick to comment on the matter, and implied that a distributed denial-of-service attack, or DDoS, may have been waged as an act of protest against the NSA.

Hat Tip Ed

 

More… Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack.

UPDATE: Four hours later (21:30 CST) the NSA website is still down.
