Washington: A group of hackers, who had
earlier attacked the US Senate`s portal, have now claimed that
they have breached into the CIA`s website.

The website of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
faced problems in loading allegedly due to the breach.

The hacker group LulzSec tweeted yesterday "Tango down
- cia.", claiming that they were behind the cyber attack.

"Shortly after LulzSec sent the message on Twitter,
the CIA`s website was unable to load in multiple attempts on
multiple browsers," The Los Angeles Times reported.

"We are looking into these reports," CIA spokesperson
Marie E Harf said.
Earlier in the week, the same group claimed to have
hacked the website of the US Senate.
