The National Crime Agency website DDoSed?

Harry Readhead reports:

A hacking group has claimed to have attacked the National Crime Agency in revenge for the arrest of several people for internet attacks.

As part of Operation Vivarium, the NCA detained six people on 28 August for allegedly purchasing a hacking tool that allows users to temporarily shut down websites.

And hackgroup Lizard Squad appeared to claim they were behind the shut down of the National Crime Agency site today after they tweeted: ‘Stressed out?’ followed by a link to the NCA site and the hashtag ‘#offline’.

Beneath the caption was the Lizard Squad logo: a lizard wearing a top hat and monocle.

As of the time of this posting, the NCA site is online.
