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.

Again, please someone show me something new that Wikileaks have shown us?


How about massive spying campaign on the world leaders - like their DNA! If they were spying on how some negotiations went, what confidential views someone had, that would be expected and nothing to be shamed about, but this is ridiculous!

Oh, and BTW, if WikiLeaks have not shown anything "new", then why the smear campaign on behalf of US government? Think about it, they are panicking over something, it's not just hot air.
