Wikileaks crossfire: Cyber-attacks from supporters and opponents

If the internet weather is bad right now where you’re at, it’s most likely down to the amount of online attacks being carried out by supporters and opponents of Wikileaks. It’s a fascinating aspect to the story, and one that is starting to get some good coverage. I’ve collected some stories that delve into Anonymous, a loose online collective, that has launched attacks against commercial companies that have denied Wikileaks services, and also The Jester, a hacktivist who has launched denial of service attacks against Wikileaks.
