WikiLeaks comes under ‘unrelenting’ cyber attack
wikileak-169

WikiLeaks, which has released tens of thousands of emails and documents from hackings of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s inner circle, said on Tuesday that it has come under ‘unrelenting’ cyber attacks.

Numerous visitors to the anti-secrecy organization’s website reported on Tuesday that they received error messages when they tried to open up links to emails from the hacked account of John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman.

‘We have been under unrelenting DDoS attacks over the last 24 hours,’ the organization tweeted on Tuesday.

Initially, the attacks were reported to have prevented WikiLeaks from releasing additional batches of Podesta’s emails.

These kinds of attacks are designed to shut down a network resource, thereby denying access to it from users.

The timing of the attacks is sure to raise eyebrows, given that it came on the same day that Americans go to the polls to elect a new president.
