AlQaedaSec takes down the New York City's website(

The computer hacker group called ALQaeda Sec launched a Distributed Denial- Of -Service (DDOS) attack on the official site of New York city (

The hackers tweeted :
#TANGODOWN you just got #911'D!
#Allah give us strength against the filthy sinners!
#AlQaedaSec #UGNazi #Cocksec #91FUN

The hacker group used botnets to keep the site down by continously sending large number of requests , As shared by s3rver.exe, one of the member of the attack.

An assumption is made by the picture that symbolize burned American flag posted by the hacker group , it seems a form of protest against the US Government but the s3ver.exe, a member of the group claimed that the attack was introduced just "for lulz".
The Hacktivits have been announced last week a lot of " Tango Downs"

The Anonymous hacker Havittaja with other members together  took down three websites of the Brazillian Federal Police then the site of Central Intelligence Agency ( and also the US department of Justice ( were down for several hours.
