the Interruption of the site could be associated with the internal investigation.


The website of the national security Agency of the United States almost to the day halted work after the news of the alleged hacking of the servers and the subsequent theft of cyberweapons, the group Equation Group, presumably associated with the U.S. secret service. Currently, the connection between these two events is unclear, the newspaper notes Politico.

According to the resource, the problems began on Monday (23.54 local time) and continued until about 17.00 the next day. The stop occurred a few hours later after the group Shadow Brokers said the attack on the servers of Equation Group and the theft of hacker tools, including cyber weapons. As specified, at the time of failure the main page of the NSA website was available, but the links did not worked. According to an anonymous source, a break in the site could be associated with the internal investigation. The secret service declined to comment.

According to some experts, including former NSA employee Edward Snowden, the alleged theft may be associated with the scandal around the leak of data from the servers of the National Committee of the US Democratic party. However, at the moment there is no confirmation of connection between all these incidents.
