Wikileaks Is Getting Pummeled By Unknown Attackers
Wikileaks, the Internet’s top platform for exposing secrets of all varieties, is reporting that it’s been under serious attack for the better part of a week. This extended DDoS is still coming in strong, and has brought the site to its knees.
The DDoS traffic, which has reportedly been coming in at a rate of 10 gigabits per second, has effectively crippled the site, and raised all sorts of questions as to who might be behind it. While Wikileaks has no shortage of enemies, it recently published a number of classified U.S. documents detailing what may be a huge, secret surveillance project.
