Wikileaks back online after 'denial-of-service' attack
London, Aug 15 (ANI): Secret-spilling group WikiLeaks is back online after it was hit by a cyber attack due to which its website was inaccessible for more than a week.
WikiLeaks said it was flooded with ten gigabits per second of bogus traffic from thousands of Internet addresses after it fell victim of a sustained denial-of-service attack.
According to the BBC, Wikileaks said that a group calling itself Anti Leaks had said it was behind the attack.
Wikileaks Press, a Wikileaks-endorsed website that publishes news about the organisation, noted that the attack had started shortly after emails were leaked about surveillance by software company Trapwire.
The firm collects data from CCTV cameras and number plate readers in a bid to forecast acts of terrorism.
According to the report, the emails were obtained after a hack of US-based intelligence company Stratfor. (ANI)
