WikiLeaks Again Under DDoS Attack For Last 5 Days

WikiLeaks Again Under DDoS Attack For Last 5 Days

Yet again Wikileaks official website faced denial of service attack. Earlier we have seen two similar attack, first it was in 2011 when  an Anonymous member took responsibility of that Attack on Wikileaks website. That  time the attacker executed a massive Denial of Service while using newly developed tool #refref. In an exlusive report by Corero Network Security said the attack on Wikileaks site was one of the largest DDoS attack ever took place in 2011. Back in May this year, Wikileaks was also taken down by a DDoS attack which also infected controversial file sharing site "The Pirate Bay". As per sources the site has been down for the last five days, during which it has been experiencing a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. So far it was the longest attack ever happened against Wikileaks. The most notable thing is that according the organisation already claimed a government entity is behind the hit. Many of other unofficial sources are connecting this attack with a recent story, which restarted the WikiLeaks donation. At the time of the attack team VOGH took the following screen shot which clearly showing that was indeed inaccessible

The first tweet was sent out on August 3:- is down for unknown reasons. We are investigating. is still up.

#WikiLeaks .onion mirror available: http://isax7s5yooqgelbr.onion/ Accessible only through Tor

Most WikiLeaks mirrors have been brought offline as well, with some coming back today. Even sites simply related to WikiLeaks have been targeted. These include the WikiLeaks-endorsed website Cabledrum, including its mirror of the WikiLeaks website, and French non-profit FDNN, which hosts a WikiLeaks' donation portal. The latter was attacked shortly after WikiLeaks linked to it as an alternative to donate while the WikiLeaks website is down. WL Central and Justice for Assange were also attacked for a short period of time. According to Zdnet a hacker group calling themselves 'AntiLeaks' is claiming responsibility for the attack, and has issued the following statement:-
"You can call me DietPepsi. I am the leader of AntiLeaks. We are not doing this to call attention to ourselves. We are young adults, citizens of the United States of America and are deeply concerned about the recent developments with Julian Assange and his attempt at aslyum in Ecuador.
Assange is the head of a new breed of terrorist. We are doing this as a protest against his attempt to escape justice into Ecuador. This would be a catalyst for many more like him to rise up in his place. We will not stop and they will not stop us."
