A group of hackers calling themselves NaijaCyberHacktivists claimed the attack today on the EFCC site, which saw its usual home page replaced with a warning from the group.
The hackers said the attack was a response to suggestions the government censor on Internet content.
Commission spokesman Femi Babafemi told the Associated Press that it is the fifth time the Commission's website has been attacked.
He blamed the assault on corrupt politicians, saying the volume of information on the site poses a lot of threats to some of the people the EFCC prosecutes.
Hackers have hit other government websites this year as well.
