Hackers Defend WikiLeaks by Attacking PayPal and PostFinance

Hackers Defend WikiLeaks by Attacking PayPal and PostFinance:

"A group of hackers connected to the online imageboard 4chan, often referred to as Anonymous, have retaliated against several sites which have denied service to WikiLeaks shortly after the site started leaking secret embassy cables.

The site of Swiss bank PostFinance, which has closed the account of WikiLeaks (Wikileaks) founder Julian Assange, has been taken down and is still unavailable at the time of this writing. Hackers have also attacked PayPal but have only managed to take down the site’s blog (blog), while the service remained operational."

  1. Lets see how impressed you are when the GOVT intelligence agencies use their own Wiki Leaks cyberwar operation as justification to take down the internet and censor it heavily. Joe Lieberman already has that legislation written and in committee. Wow, have you ever seen Congress so efficient? Maybe only on the Patriot Act- 1500 pages of which was already on their desks, ready to go on Sept 12 ?

  2. I'm not impressed. It's a piece of news and everybody is talking about it. I posted it so my students could talk about it. I know what's going to happen next, it's not difficult to imagine.
