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.

J If one person dies from the compromised security of any leaked document he is guilty of treason and the US constitution makes the death penalty the punishment.


Jesus, repeat after me: Julian Assange is not a US-citizen, he cannot commit treason against the United States.

People who say its okay to give compromising information and endanger them I have serious problems with.

Who says this? Wikileaks, who have repeatedly asked the Pentagon to help them redact the documents before they are released so that nobody is harmed?

Wikileaks, who redact the documents they release working together with irresponsible organizations like the Guardian, Spiegel, El Pais and Le Monde in redacting the documents?
