A member of the Anonymous hacking group has taken down the website of the US Department of Justice with a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack.

Following a similar attack on the CIA website, which had reportedly been offline for 45 minutes, Brazilian hacker Havittaja launched an assault on the department’s homepage.

On Twitter, he claimed responsibility for the DDoS, saying it was done for the “lulz”, which refers to the popular online abbreviation “for laughs”.
