Internet & Networking It looks like several companies are learning what happens when you mess with the internet - and they're learning it the hard way. Several major companies have been hit by the collective powers of Anonymous after 4chan launched several distributed denial-of-service attacks. What many have been predicting for a long time now has finally happened: an actual war between the powers that be on one side, and the internet on the other. Update: PayPal has admitted their WikiLeaks snub came after pressure from the US government, and Datacell, which takes care of payments to Wikileaks, is threatening to sue MasterCard over Wikileaks' account suspension. Update II: Visa.com is down due to the attack. Update III: PayPal has caved under the pressure, and will release the funds in the WikiLeaks account.

But it does influence OS's

I'm not going to link it though because the leak contains a "may be" and the company has an army of lawyers and in a sense it will also be unfair because it's not really their fault.
The leak however will do some good because the the said company will have to implement better controls or preventative measures.
Does this leak might bring some good in the os world.

Other than that journalist is required and permitted to have opinions these days.
Like it or dont like.
