NSA site down due to alleged DDoS attack

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

We wouldn't be having these problems if the NSA didn't exist. We don't need the NSA. We have intelligence service in every branch of the military.

You know, theres an old joke

National Cyber Security Awareness Month

This was expected, the government needed its "awareness" box ticked.
