WikiLeaks Suffers Cyber Attack

The whistle-blower site becomes the target of a DDoS attack.

PCMagazine: On Tuesday, the WikiLeaks website became the target of a DDoS attack that lasted several hours. While users were reporting difficulty accessing the site, the organization took the opportunity to ask for donations. It tweeted, “Want to really help WikiLeaks fend off attacks? Send us money to pay the bills. Many people x $5 = strength. Wikileaks.lu/support.html.”

The news comes just days after WikiLeaks itself reportedly suffered a leak.
