NSA: No denial-of-service attack
The Associated Press
The agency says an internal error in the system caused the problem.
There had been speculation on the Internet that the online site had been hit with a denial-of-service attack, but the agency said that was not true.
A denial-of-service attack is an attempt by outsiders to make a network unavailable to its intended users.
The NSA said the problem would be resolved Friday night.
