Wikileaks hit by cyber attacks
Nov 07, 2016
It looks like the Democratic Party is fighting back, trying to prevent its corruption secrets from being published before the election.
WikiLeaks, the whistleblowing platform managed by Julian Assange, has reportedly suffered a "targeted" distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) cyberattack, less than 24 hours after releasing over 8,000 fresh emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
In a leak released less than two days before the date of the US presidential election, the second major batch of data from inside the US Democratic Party comes after the publication of over 50,000 personal messages from the inbox of John Podesta, a close aide to Hillary Clinton.
