Submission + - Wikileaks taken offline 1

ThreeFourZero writes: "Wikileaks, the wiki dedicated to leaking untracable, anonymous documents is offline after a series of incidents. A 500Mbps DDoS attack, followed by a fire in their UPS systems in Sweden at their host site. The final factor was a permanent injunction granted in California to a Swiss bank against Wikileaks. Wikileaks had perviously published hundreds of documents "proportedly showing offshore tax evasion and money laundering by extremely wealthy and in some cases, politically sensitive, clients from the US, Europe, China and Peru" amoung other things. Wikileaks is still available at its .be domain."
