Bank Of America Denies Services To Wikileaks, New DDOS Wave incoming?

The Bank of America has announced today that it will stop handling payments for Wikileaks. This news comes in the wake of the incident after major get ways like Master Card, Pay Pal and Visa denied services to the site and subsequently faced a torrent of DDOS attacks.

In a statement the Bank said That

his decision is based upon our reasonable belief that WikiLeaks may be engaged in activities that are, among other things, inconsistent with our internal policies for processing payments

The Wikileaks twitter page retorted with a statement on twitter saying that

We ask that all people who love freedom close out their accounts at Bank of America,

We can safely say that the Banking Major is now a red painted target for the “Operation Payback”.

Rich Mogul, an analyst with the security firm Securosis in an interview with Yahoo Finance says that he believes that the bank was likely to have strong defense since it already was a high priority target. Considering the fact that they had waited so long after the other getways were attacked it is likely that this is Bank Of America almost calling out the attackers. We have reasons to believe that the security has been beefed up considerably. We also expect an attack on the said site.

So another bunch of wimps joins in the US government instigated action against Wikileaks! What a pathetic bunch this wonderful site has brought out of the woodwork. The US government has so much to hide and Wikileaks is showing the General Public just what a bunch of self-centred idiots is running the country. The whole basis of this “witch hunt” on behalf of the niggaprez of America is to discredit Wikileaks in the eyes of the world. All this bunch of morons has shown is how corrupt and secretive they are. Good for Wikileaks and to hell with these pathetic namby-pamby who oppose it.

According to me, this is definitely a step in the right direction by Bank of America. Thanks.
