wikileaks website

wikileaks website

Hours ahead of an awaited leak of millions of classified US documents, Wikileaks today claim it was the victim of a cyber attack but said the documents would be revealed to the public through several big named newspapers. On Twitter the site stated that: "We are currently under a mass distributed denial of service attack."

It added that even if its website goes down a number of newspapers will go ahead and publish the documents released to them. Ahead of the release of the potentially embarrassing documents, which the US fears could harm its relations with several countries, the American administration asked the website to refrain from making the classified documents public. It has asked it to return the "illegally obtained" papers, insisting that their leak would "endanger the lives of countless individuals."

So a real mishap with the website and they will be hoping they resolve the issue as soon as possible.
