The website of a controversial coalition of hackers behind an increasingly high profile hacking spree, has apparently been brought down.

Currently Lulz Security 's website refuses to load and is responding in a manner typical of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. DDoS attachs overload target websites with requests, crippling the site's servers for a limited time.

It has also been DDoS attacks that have frozen the websites of the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency website, the US' FBI, Brazil's brasilia.gov.br website, as well as many more, with incidences increasing of late.

The prime suspects are Team Poison- the group's arch rivals in the escalating cyber war, though Team Poison have yet to confirm this.
