LulzSec hackers take down Brazil government websites

News Core – Fox News, 06/22/2011

The hacker group known as Lulz Security claimed Wednesday that it successfully brought down two Brazilian government websites in fresh attacks.

It came after British teenager Ryan Cleary was taken into custody Monday night for his alleged involvement with the international computer hacking group, which claims to have targeted several high-profile organizations recently, including the CIA, US Senate, an affiliate of the FBI and Sony’s PlayStation Network.

In a Twitter message posted early Wednesday morning, LulzSecBrazil wrote, “TANGO DOWN brasil.gov.br & presidencia.gov.br.” The main LulzSec page then tweeted, “Our Brazilian unit is making progress. Well done @LulzSecBrazil, brothers!”
