The insanity that is Wikileaks continues. As you may know if you have been following this soap opera, PayPal, MasterCard and Visa all suffered attacks after cutting off funding to the Wikileaks site.
According to one website, a Hacktivist groups called Anonymous (“Anonops” – See video above) that attacked the financial companies is offering its hacker toolkit (LOIC – Low Orbit Ion Cannon) free to any one who wants to join in on the offensive. There are currently about 500 computers in the LOIC Botnet Hive. Wow, what were they thinking there?
It looks like a full war of Hacktivists has started as Anonops itself suffered a Denial of Service Attack. Pandalabs has an exceptional timeline with charts of the ongoing DDoS war.
And lastly, The Jester breaks the silence and releases a statement. Basically saying that there is a Jester imposter, and vengeance is mine.
Craziness, and I was hoping this Wikileaks nonsense would stop this week. Now it seems that it has created a DDoS storm of pro and anti-Wikileaks followers.
What is next? Tune in next week for the next exciting episode of “Why isn’t Assange in Federal Prison yet”? Or “Obama shuts down internet to stop DDoS attacks”.
