WikiLeaks: Hackers Now Set Sights On Paypal,Amazon & Facebook

Post by GD on Thu 09 Dec 2010, 6:22 pm

Web anarchists supporting WikiLeaks are attempting to bring down Paypal's website after an effort to bring down Amazon.com failed

Anonymous - the group claiming responsibility for attacks on Mastercard and Visa - targeted the online payment service after Paypal made the decision to stop processing donations to WikiLeaks.
It is the second time this week that hackers have attempted to bring down Paypal.com. But the hackers only managed to "knock them back", not "bring them down".
The latest effort aims to bring the entire site to a standstill.
The group had earlier announced the move on Amazon, but failed when they discovered they did not have the required resources.
Anonymous did, however, reassure supporters that they would return to take down the retailer: "We can not attack Amazon, currently. The previous schedule was to do so, but we don't have enough forces."
The threat came after a series of attacks on websites perceived to be opposing the whistleblower.
And the new attack comes shortly after a spokesman for Anonymous told Sky News that Facebook could be the next target.
Facebook accounts used by Anonymous to co-ordinate its work were deleted, as well as groups it uses to communicate with supporters.



We will find and will attack those who stand against WikiLeaks and we will support WikiLeaks in everything they need.

The hackers claimed victory after attacking Visa, Mastercard and PayPal for withdrawing services from WikiLeaks - and warned Twitter is also a target of Operation: Payback. (from sky)
