Hackers Attack MasterCard Site in Revenge for WikiLeaks Ban

The websites of the international credit card MasterCard (MA) and the Swedish prosecution authority are among the latest to be taken offline in the escalating technological battle over WikiLeaks, web censorship and perceived political pressure. The Swedish prosecution authority has confirmed its website was attacked last night and this morning. MasterCard was partially paralysed today in revenge for the payment network’s decision to cease taking donations to WikiLeaks. – The Guardian
