Submission + - Anonymous Vows Revenge For Wikileaks And Demonoid Blackouts (techweekeurope.co.uk)

twoheadedboy writes: "Anonymous has said it will not take lightly this week’s actions against Wikileaks and Demonoid, one of the world’s oldest torrent-tracking websites which was shut down this week. Wikileaks sites remain down, including the main portal, wikileaks.org, and many of its mirror sites which are spread around the world, such as wikileaks.de in Germany. Julian Assange’s organisation claims to have been hit by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. The websites have been down for almost a week now, but someone has come forward and taken responsibility for the sustained hit. An organisation going by the name of @AntiLeaks on Twitter claimed to be behind the DDoS. "Wikileaks survives through donations that pay for their cyber terrorism and Assange’s legal defense. We will continue to enforce a blockade on Wikileaks and it’s [sic] supporters whom attempt to raise donations on it’s [sic] behalf," the account holder tweeted. Anonymous said @AntiLeaks' actions meant "war", whilst pledging to attack Ukranian authorities for taking down Demonoid."
