Wikileaks Has Become Latest Victim of DDoS Attack

 

The whistle blowing website Wikileaks has been under a constant DDoS attack since the 3rd of August. Visitors to the site are experiencing slow load times or failure of the site to load at all.

A DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack is an overload of a website being ‘asked’ for information. In the case of Wikileaks it is being ‘asked’ at a rate of 10 gigabits per second from fake traffic.

The amount of information being sent and requested from the site is much more than the usual DDoS attack which has recently been seen affecting websites.

  Strange  
 
how this attack began at the time Wikileaks began to leak secret documents, which were obtained from Stratfor, about a secret surveillance system called TrapWire. Even stranger is the fact that the company running TrapWire is made up of ex-CIA agaents.
Someone didn´t want this information released. I have seen some of the documents and it is worrying. Search and you will find them. #TrapWire

  It is a very scary world...  
 
People are either completely oblivious or to afraid to even speak about a lot that is going on. :/

don´t even understand what is going on in the world and the only news they see (and believe) is presented in a ½ hour format with 12 minutes of it being sport and 5 minutes weather and a bunch of ads. If it´s on the nightly news it must be true.

Wikileaks has proven the sheer magnitude of lies told to us and information withheld from us by the mainstream media outlets, and the role they play in serving the propaganda governments want us to believe.

SN was/is great for presenting a range of stories from multiple sources. Let´s hope it gets to be a valid news service once again.
