Assange supporters attack Visa website - U.S. news - WikiLeaks in Security - msnbc.com
I guess they pulled it off.
This is what I'm currently getting at visa.com :
I wonder how many LOICs are required to take down VISA and Mastercard. Boingboing has some decent coverage on this.
Hacking websites is bad enough, especially for "payback", but do they really have to use OBNOXIOUS ALL CAPS!!
I believe the correct answer is over 9000.
Anyway, we needs some slowclap.gif in here
Down goes paypal. No ebay tonight
Man, that sucks, and right around the holiday times.
This. I feel for the people who need to use it to wrap up Christmas shopping.
all because a bunch of hackers got bent out of shape because a the guy got himself and his website into trouble for releasing stuff he had no business having in the first place. I am sure all of us saw the trouble he is getting coming.
I am not saying what he did was wrong or right but these Internet vigilantes hacking the websites because they cut off wikileaks is just wrong.
I am all for Free speech on the Internet but you have to draw a line someplace.
If they were going to hack the Visa website, the least they could have done is erased my credit card balance while they were there. Jerks.
For real right, at the moment they are just inconveniencing everybody. The least they could do is wipe out some personal debts and such. My wife has some substantial school loan debts we could use help with.
I can't even access news stories with wikileaks in the title.
Now that wikileaks' founder is in custody, let hackers know for every time a site gets hacked, he gets Jack Bauer'd.
I'm sure this qualifies as politics.
that is an interesting notion. Discussing an attack on Mastercard is "politics"?
wow, R. Talsorian Games must be fascinated that a cyberwar is taking so close to the timeline of Cyberpunk 2020.
still, this is scary enough that i don't make fun of the old timers around here whose favorite bank is Mason Jars.
Buncha Tyler Durden wannabes.
Wikileaks shouldn't have existed to begin with, and yet now we're dealing with hackers who are being really annoying by hacking websites. Hope the people who supported Wikileaks get what's coming to them.
Yay, now I don't wanna go to paypals site or check my balances on stuff...
Well, Paypal's site is still up, or it is now.
Paypal is up.
...honesty, transparency and accountability?
