mastercard.com is down after they cut off WikiLeaks
mastercard.com is the latest big website that is brought down using DDOS attacks by ‘Operation:Payback’ [Anonymous]. Their ‘target’ page reads:
“Add you suggestions below the line: Paypal’s main site needs to be hit hard. With shopping coming up and people needing to pay for their online purchases, this will really put them at a halt and regret messing with Wikileaks and Anon.
- no .gov sites
- no senate/house rep sites
Any US Anti WL site,
- Eventually Mastercard/ Visa, not viable with current hive.
If we go after a US site, more US anon will join, its only (as of this writing) 10:20 EST, vs. like 4 am in euro.”
This comes after a list of other websites that appear to be anti-wikileaks; you can read more here and here.
