OPERATION PAYBACK DEFENDS WIKILEAKS


A group of Internet activists calling themselves Operation Payback have taken credit for shutting down the website of a bank that earlier Monday froze funds belonging to WikiLeaks.

Operation Payback also promised a hack attack on PayPal, the online payment service that last week cut off WikiLeaks, denying the group a major tool for collecting donations from supporters.

With the financial noose tightening around WikiLeaks even as a legal one tightens around its founder's neck, Operation Payback has effectively declared war on the organizations working to hobble WikiLeaks.

This is really far from over; it just may be just starting to heat up with the involvement of hackers taking down major financial institutions. This may even blow out of proportion and may lead to total internet blackout which is detrimental to world economy.
