http://wlcentral.org/node/2756 WikiLeaks' donation portal through French non-profit FDNN was also taken offline, shortly after WikiLeaks linked to it as a way to donate while the WikiLeaks website is offline. WikiLeaks offered their speculation of possible reasons for the timing of the attacks: Attacking under the cover of the London Olympics. An upcoming WikiLeaks release. Ongoing releases of the Syria Files and the Global Intelligence Files. A cable which reports on an assassination attempt on Chinese leader Hu Jintao's son and another killing at the top of the Chinese Communist Party. This cable was recently reported on by The Epoch Times and China's Forbidden News. Cabledrum @Cabledrummer cabledrum.net is under heavy DDoS attack #wikileaks UPDATE 2012-08-08 09:40 BST WL Central was down for a short period of time, as was Justice for Assange. WikiLeaks, FDNN, and Cabledrum all remain offline. UPDATE 2012-08-08 18:10 BST WikiLeaks and FDNN are back online. Although, they are not accessible by everyone. Justice for Assange and FDNN are back up but I am still unable to access Wikileaks.org as of 1:02 PST. There's also this.. http://www.crikey.com.au/2012/07/04/us-increases-harassment-of-wikileaks-assange-associates/ ..which makes me think the US government is behind the attacks.
