Regular readers of OSM may remember we recently reported that Wikileaks, the whistle-blowing website, had announced via Twitter that it would shortly publish more leaks, hundreds of thousands of them, in news that it said would redefine global history.
Today Wikileaks has announced that just before the publication of these documents its website appears to be under attack, and announced on its Twitter feed which you can see here, “We are currently under a mass distributed denial of service attack,” according to Steven Musil over on Cnet News. Cnet also reports that it is unable to access the Wikileaks website right now.
However Wikileaks has said that the information will still be published as it has been distributed to various global newspapers and at this moment Sky News in the U.K. is presently discussing some of the information already released.
