WikiLeaks' next target: 'A big U.S. bank'

Interesting with everything that is happening in regards to the wikileaks. Any thoughts on the next wikileak plan released today? Major news sources are stating that a big US bank may be a target. But which?http://money.cnn.com/2010/11/30/news...eaks/index.htm

Re: WikiLeaks' next target: 'A big U.S. bank'

If Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, goes on a "holiday" tomorrow, is anybody going to really miss him? Whom will be looking for him?

As always, he is either brave or stupid, and I expect will probably end up "missing in action".

Which bank? I really do not care, they are all terrible, and things can't get much worse.

Bank of America perhaps ?

"At the moment, for example, we are sitting on 5GB from Bank of America, one of the executive's hard drives," he said. "Now how do we present that? It's a difficult problem. We could just dump it all into one giant Zip file, but we know for a fact that has limited impact. To have impact, it needs to be easy for people to dive in and search it and get something out of it."

Re: WikiLeaks' next target: 'A big U.S. bank'

Computerworld - WikiLeaks, the focus of attention since it released a quarter-million U.S. diplomatic cables two days ago, is again under a denial-of-service (DoS) attack, Internet researchers said today.
The site remained online with some short interruptions, however, as did a secondary site, cablegate.wikileaks.org, where nearly 300 U.S. State Department internal messages have been published thus far.
[The attackers] have upped their game," said Craig Labovitz, chief scientist at Arbor Networks, a supplier of anti-DoS technology.
"This looks like a different attack from yesterday. It's a more complex attack, with multiple components, and it's a more significant attack," added Labovitz.

Re: WikiLeaks' next target: 'A big U.S. bank'

It's about time Wikileaks started picking targets outside the US. Otherwise, it's going to look even more biased. How about China or Russia. There must be plenty of interesting stuff there.

Interesting that Assange is so keen for others to be upfront but still hasn't turned himself in to the Swedish authorities or leaked any documents supporting his allegation that he's a victim of a smear campaign.
