the website of the U.S. Secret NSA has temporarily paralyzed.
“The page was tonight because of an error that occurred during a scheduled update, unreachable for several hours,” said an NSA spokeswoman. The website (local time) was nsa.gov since the afternoon temporarily unavailable. The spokeswoman dismissed rumors back, after a hacker attack that caused the failure.
messaging service Twitter had earlier made speculations about such an attack the round. The group Anonymous reacted with scorn from the failure of the page. There is no reason to worry, the NSA disponer a backup copy of the entire Internet, said the activists with a view to comprehensive U.S. data espionage. The hacker group had claimed responsibility for a series of online attacks over the past few years. The NSA is after the revelations of former U.S. intelligence employee Edward Snowden in the center of a worldwide Spähaffäre.
