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.

Update:

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

#anonymous did not take down Justice.gov. Credit goes to @channelzeroyt and #UnderGods.

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

Update:

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