Pro-Wikileaks hackers bring down Mastercard website

How sweet it is!

A group of hackers operating anonymously have brought down the website of Mastercard.

Hurray for the Internet guerrillas!


Read Guardian article.

From NYT: "Targets included, which stopped processing donations for WikiLeaks;, which revoked server space from the group; the online payment service PayPal, which cut off its commercial cooperation; the lawyer representing the two Swedish women who have accused Mr. Assange in the sex case; and PostFinance, the Swiss postal system’s financial arm, which closed Mr. Assange’s account after saying he provided false information by saying that he resided in Switzerland."
