Wikileaks Claims to Have Been the Victim of a Week Long Attack

The whistle blowing site received sustained Denial-of-service attacks.


The secret-busting organization WikiLeaks says it's been the victim of a sustained denial-of-service attack which has left its website sluggish or inaccessible for more than a week.

In a statement released late Saturday the group said the assault intensified around the beginning of August and has since expanded to include attacks against affiliated sites.
