WikiLeaks Site Is Down (Offline)

Looks like Wikileaks, after some vigilante-ish furious DDoS'ing attempts, has finally been "knocked" offline. Was it due to the work of the DDoS'ers? Newp, it's Domain Name Service (DNS) was removed by the free DNS service provider that they were using ...

EveryDNS.net provided domain name system (DNS) services to the wikileaks.org domain name until 10PM EST, December 2, 2010, when such services were terminated.

Wikileaks is taking the stance of this is now an "InfoWar", and they are the "generals, spearheading the battle", attempting to use America's 1st Amendment (Freedom of Speech) as a shield (which is failing rapidly).

Annnnd, in the blink of an eye, Wikileaks is back online again. Wonder how long it'll last before it's down again? Laughing

Evidently they moved to a Swiss server at wikileaks.ch
