SYDNEY (AFP) - Hacking group Anonymous on Friday claimed to have shut down a computer server belonging to Australia's domestic spy agency Asio, reportedly briefly closing down access to its public webpage.

The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (Asio) acknowledged some disruption to its website.

"Asio is aware that there may have been some technical issues with its public website," a spokesperson said.

"Asio's public website does not host any classified information and any disruption would not represent a risk to Asio's business."
