The founder of WikiLeaks is probably one of the most hated men in the world right now and is saught after by both the Americans and the Swedish.
Julian Assange is the brainchild behind the site, which has released hundreds of thousands of confidential documents of significance because of their importance when it comes to national security.
WikiLeaks’ U.S. domain name system provider, EveryDNS, has pulled the plug on the domain, forcing the site to switch to a new domain extention wikileaks.ch.
“Wikileaks.org has become the target of multiple distributed denial of service attacks. These attacks have, and future attacks would, threaten the stability of the EveryDNS.net infrastructure,” EveryDNS said in a statement.
“Pressure appears to have been applied to close the WikiLeaks domain name,” tweeted Mark Stephens, Assange’s lawyer.
Currently it is not known where exactly the cyber attacks were coming from, but in the past, WikiLeaks have claimed that the United States government were behind them.
