Officials: Swedish prosecution authority's site hacked

The Swedish prosecution authority's website was attacked, officials said Wednesday, a day after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested in the United Kingdom on a Swedish warrant.

Prosecutors did not say who they thought was behind the apparent denial-of-service attack, which has been reported to the police, they said.

The website is working again, and no other systems have been affected, the statement said.

    4chan has declared war on both the US government and their allies in the defense of wikileaks. They see the DDoSing of wikileaks and the US gov's actions to be cyber terrorism.

    In an 1823 letter to Lafayette, Jefferson warned: “The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted to be freely expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure.” Welcome to the Computer wars against corrupt governments.

    Dropping 2 pts yesterday will surely provide a boost in hopes for the Barca side.
    As long as we're not getting all 3 pts, they'll feel that they have a
    chance to catch up...just when they're beginning to feel psychologically deflated.

    reach compliance
