Second Edit: Looking more serious than just a normal attack now...

To add to onto the apparent capture set out onto him, it's apparently being brought down now due to mass attacks, doesn't claim quite who, unless I'm just not reading it right.

Inserted the link so check it out for yourself.

I'm not sure if it's just a regular attack or what exactly is going on. Maybe someone else can clear it up.

In a bit of a hurry, but here you go.


Edit: It seems more well organized of an attack than before thought, the site will remain down aslong as it lasts, which if it was VERY well organized, may be quite a while.

Still pretty vague on total info. But still pretty interesting.

Doesn't it make you feel better? The pigs have won tonight. They can all sleep soundly. And everything is all right.

No wonder that i can't open related websites, maybe it is unfair for wikileaks to be banned everywhere, they just tell us the truth, however the truths are dangerous.

so does this mean that the speculated "insurance file code" will know be released since the wiki site has been closed?


lets see what that brings about now.....

ATS'ers: Don't believe a word of it. It's called Distributed 'Denial of Service' attacks, basically it takes a *very* high amount of compromised cisco routers (corrupt pc's, etc.) to send a mass amount of data to a destination address. This will pass.

I think maybe you are getting confused about the difference between a web server and a DNS server.
Wikileaks has had it's DNS server pulled because it was, as you said, the target of a DDOS attack

Appreciate that, the Wikileaks twitter feed was very vague when they posted it, hence why I made this.

If freedom talks about the future, then the silence keeps you cool.. I am sure living in the shadows makes you beg for the light, the more we hold on... The more you are letting go.. It is us that are loving to be left on our own, yet living in the unknown shroud the good intentions, leaving men to bend.. No do not talk about the future, we like standing in the dark, listening to the cracks form... A man sick in his disease stuck staring at his hands wondering what he has tossed in the sand. As we turn our back wanting the things we can't have. A lesson learned in what intention was meant. As it falls apart in your hands remember the intentions.. It was not the way I am sure you meant..

the light washes away our troubles... Let it go... Lets just find ourselves on our own..

Already WikiLeaks is getting buried in the confines of history. Already, I cannot recall what WikiLeaks was or if it ever really existed. Is this the site you all speak of? sagebrushpatriot.com...

As far as I understand it, it could be considered as both.

The DDOS works by sending a LOT of information requests to a specific web site.

Every web site has a DNS entry that translates an IP address ( i.e. 10.10.10.10) into a domain name (i.e. yourwebsite.com)
When you type a website name into your address bar (like www.abovetopsecret.com) that name gets translated by the DNS server into an actual IP address
The people that own the server that translates the domain name into the IP address have removed wikileaks from their server because it is receiving so many requests to translate that address that it can't cope.

The problem is however that if you type in the actual IP address of wikileaks then you still get a message saying (Too many requests) so I guess they are targeting both at once

If there is a constant DDOS attack on the domain name wikileaks.com then no DNS server will ever be able to translate it and the site is effectively dead

Everything I have said in the above post may well be completely wrong though, I always allow for that possibility
