Wikileaks Name Change.

After Amazon, Wikileaks’s domain name provider in the US has decided it can’t keep tabs on them any longer.

So Wikileaks.org is defunct for the moment and wikileaks.ch (the Swiss domain) is now running it.

The funny thing is, that it should be possible to work out *who*, or at least where the Denial of Service attacks are coming from…

Update 1: Elsewhere the German Pirate Party are hosting Wikileaks’s material too, see wikileaks.piratenpartei.de

Update 2: It seems that Paypal has joined forces against Wikileaks. I assume that someone lent on them too, the Beeb reports:

“PayPal said its payment service cannot be used for activities “that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity”.

Update 3: PandaLabs has more on the Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks on Wikileaks.
