DoJ website hacked by Anonymous? Update: Who is responsible? Update: Site has been restored

The U.S. Department of Justice website is down this evening. It appears it may have been knocked offline by a hacker. Stay tuned for updates.


It is unclear whether Anonymous was responsible. Other hackers, some of them linked to Anonymous, are claiming credit:

This is ChannelZeroYT’s Twitter bio:


The Department of Justice is the chief law enforcement agency for the federal government. If its website is not secure, that is troubling.


This Twitter user was among the first to tweet about the incident:


Why aren’t the media covering this? Again, we are talking about the website of the federal government’s primary criminal investigation and enforcement agency.


The site has been restored.

    Justice gets in the way of Obama’s agenda. It had to go down a some point.

  • louisiana_mom

    I’d donate to them if they came up with something on Obama or Holder that would remove either or both from office….

    HAHAHAHA love it! This DOJ is the most corrupt in the history of the US

  • Seriously?

    Get Drudge to link to this. This actually is pretty major, that the media isn’t reporting on it is disturbing.
