This won't hurt Paypal.
And it doesn't matter which payment processor Wikileaks uses anyway. None of them have enough power to stand agains whoever forced Paypal to freeze the account.
Maybe we should just avoid using the same services that Wikileaks does? Or maybe Wikileaks should stop relying on services that can be shut down?
This is a long known fact that Paypal has a habit of freezing legit accounts. So why the hell is Wikileaks still using Paypal?

It's not? Then why is the internet full of people with common goals who troll each other?

I agree with you....
ever try to sign up with these bloody companies and try to read their "terms of conditions"(fine print).NO you DON'T' have a choice. you MUST tick the one and only box and you have no choice, other wise you cannot log on or become a member. you cannot negotiate with them. They take all your info... on their terms only.
I find this very annoying......
cheers.

My Paypal account is currently frozen with 25 quid in it, they say its because I have recieved more than £1900 and as it is unverified they need more information, for the past couple of days I have been trying to use the "call me now" service in an attempt to verify my account and they say its unavailable due to a system error.

I WILL NOT give them my bank details to verify it as I do not trust them with my details, I just want the account verified so I can spend the £25 on something random and pointless, rather that than them keep my money.

The arse thing is, because it has sat there for over 180 days now, they will allow me to withdraw it, which requires them to have my bank account details.

I just wish they would allow me to use it to make a payment.




PayPal is constantly working to ensure security by regularly screening the accounts in our system. We recently reviewed your account, and we need more information to help us provide you with a secure service. Until we can collect this information, your access to sensitive account features will be limited. We would like to restore your access as soon as possible, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

Your account has been limited for more than 180 days. It will continue to be limited but you now have the ability to withdraw funds.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why is my account access limited?

Your account access has been limited for the following reason(s):

29 Nov 2010: You have received £1,900 or more in total payments to your PayPal account in this calendar year.
PayPal is required by law to comply with European Union Anti-Money Laundering regulations by collecting information from customers when they receive more than £1,900 in total payments within a calendar year.
Until you provide us with this information you will be unable to send or receive money using your PayPal account.
Please go to the Resolution Centre for more information on what you need to do.

(Your case ID for this reason is PP-000-974-192-524.)

(Your case ID for this reason is PP-001-030-975-944.)

7 Jun 2010: For reasons relating to the safe use of the PayPal service we need some more information about some of your recent eBay and PayPal activity.

(Your case ID for this reason is PP-000-978-621-643.)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How can I get my account access restored?

It's usually quite straightforward to take care of these things. Most of the time, we just need some more information about your account or latest transactions.

To help us with this and for information on what you can and can't do until the issue has been resolved, please visit the Resolution Centre.

We'll review the information you provide and email you if we need more details, or when your account is back to normal.


Once you have completed all the checklist items, your case will be reviewed by one of our Account Specialists. We will send you an email with the outcome of the review.

WikiLeaks Supporters Aim Cyberattacks At PayPal

...

I hope these Wikileaks supporters know that they just committed a serious crime, which will be considered a terrorist act on innocent people. Since the people who use PayPal put their personal information on the site, these Wikileaks hackers need to understand that they just attacked innocent individuals. If any of that personal information is stolen, used, or held as collateral, these hackers could be facing serious charges in almost every country around the world.

More News




A group of Internet activists calling themselves Operation Payback have taken credit for shutting down the website of a bank that earlier Monday froze funds belonging to WikiLeaks.

Announcing its successful hack on a Twitter account, the group declared, "We will fire at anyone that tries to censor WikiLeaks."



As of Monday evening, the PostFinance website was unavailable.

Operation Payback also promised a hack attack on PayPal, the online payment service that last week cut off WikiLeaks, denying the group a major tool for collecting donations from supporters.



Operation Payback has effectively declared war on the organizations working to hobble WikiLeaks.

"In these modern times, Internet access is fast becoming a basic human right," the group says in a video posted to YouTube. "Just like any other basic human right, we believe it is wrong to infringe upon it."

The video continues: "To move to censor content on the Internet based on your own prejudice is, at best, laughably impossible. The unjust restrictions you impose on us will meet with disaster, and only strengthen our resolve to disobey and rebel against your tyranny."

Hackers take down website of bank that froze WikiLeaks funds




My full support to Anonymous

Go Anon!

Denial of service attacks are not hacking. They do not make it possible to remove , veiw, or access data held by a site. Im a total technophobe and even I know that much. Do your damned homework.

'Anonymous' is a group of disgruntled teens who are just looking for attention. Instead of leaving a rant about them, I deleted the original statement I made.

I will not be fooled by these hackers again. They are only children.

From BBC
Wikileaks defended by hacktivists

A group called Anonymous has hit sites that have refused to do business with the controversial whistle-blowing site with a series of distributed denial-of-service attacks.

[...]

Targets include the Swiss bank that froze founder Julian Assange's assets and PayPal which has stopped processing donations to Wikileaks.

Anonymous is a loose-knit group of hacktivists, with links to the notorious message board 4chan.



"As an organisation we have always taken a strong stance on censorship and freedom of expression on the internet and come out against those who seek to destroy it by any means."

"We feel that Wikileaks has become more than just about leaking of documents, it has become a war ground, the people vs. the government,"
he said.

[...]

"The idea is not to wipe them off but to give the companies a wake-up call," he said. "Companies will notice the increase in traffic and an increase in traffic means increase in costs associated with running a website."

[..]
Anonymous is also helping to create hundreds of mirror sites for Wikileaks, after its US domain name provider withdrew its services.

"At the last count there were 507 mirrors of Wikileaks,"


Love it!!

Anons are using different mode to communicate including IRC, tinychats and pastebin. The attacks are increasing as we speak. This is a war.

After doing some more investigation on 'Anonymous', I came to the conclusion that they are a pathetic group of individuals. According to the BBC article I read, the group's attack on PayPal didn't even work. Lol...

'Anonymous' just wanted some attention. If you ignore them for long enough, they will eventually go back into internet oblivion. Lol...

They are pathetic.

You can think it all you like, but you cant go running your mouth without some sort of evidence. You see, thats what seperates propegandists from whistleblowers. Propegandists spout utter twaddle without stoppage, and flood the media and any place they can with thier bile ridden ejecta , and by volume it presses itself into all the gaps in peoples knowledge, installing itself as fact, when it is actualy fallacy and heresay.
Whistle blowers get evidence of a major wrong doing, suspicious event, or conspiracy, and give it wings. They show the ugly cancerous guts of the world to everybody , just so that when something dire happens, no one can say " we had no idea". Thier actions force otherwise inactive groups, or groups who act to the detriment of the human race, to either change thier behaviour for the better, or find a more costly , and less effective way of continuing thier ill behaviour. Whistle blowers make life hard for people who think they are Gods. That is thier sole purpose.
When a whistle blower speaks, the only thing to wonder is how to improve the bad situation you just got wind of. When a propegandist speaks, you have to take everything they say with a pinch of salt, because you can bet that the large majority of it is either untrue, or perverts the truth to suit the ends of the speaker.

I removed my statements. After reading about the group further, I realized BBC had blown this out of proportion. ''Anonymous' is just a group of teens who are seeking attention. Instead of wasting my time on these individuals, I chose to delete my posts in response to new evidence.

They are just children who think they have power. They have none.

They rule beneath me.

Why? Are you afraid that everyone will realize 'Anonymous' is a group of nobodies?

If they really had any type of online power, they would have become infamous many-many years ago.

They are just children seeking to gain from Assange's arrest.

They are a joke.
