Home Of Wikileaks.de Domain Owner Raided By Police

Posted Mar 25, 2009

Wikileaks is a website that publishes sensitive government information and religious documents.  Wikileaks tries to keep the contributors anonymous.  The last time I wrote about Wikileaks was when Bill O’Reilly’s website was hacked.  Within one year of Wikileak’s launch in 2006, the database has grown to over 1.2 million documents.

According to the organization’s About page, Wikileaks’ “primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to people of all regions who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations.”

Some of the documents that have leaked on Wikileaks includes Guantánamo Bay procedures, the hacking of Sarah Palin’s Yahoo! account, and 600 internal United Nations reports.

According to the Wikileaks Twitter account, the police has raided the home of the Wikileaks.de domain owner over censorship lists.  Check back on the post for an update on what the consequences of the raid will be.
