WikiLeaks is no stranger to controversy. In July, the organization posted tons of Americans’ credit card and social security numbers. In August, the “whistleblower site” published dozens of malware links in an email dump from AKP, Turkey’s ruling party. But Sunday evening, the organization felt it crossed a line, when…
Wikileaks withheld a batch of emails showing a $2.2 billion transaction between the Syrian regime and a Russian government-owned bank, according to a Daily Dot report. If true, the report will likely have a lasting negative impact on Wikileaks’ credibility. The report alleges that the transparency organization…
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange promised to leak “thousands” of documents from the Clinton campaign on Wednesday during an interview with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly. He also said the documents would be “significant” in the context of the presidential election. Assange vowed to publish the data before the November…
WikiLeaks published more than 80 variants of malware in the second email dump from Turkey’s ruling political party (AKP), according to anti-virus security expert Vesselin Bontchev.
Wikileaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange blatantly lied about publishing only the “last four digits” of credit card numbers from democratic donors during an appearance on the HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday.
WikiLeaks has hit rock bottom. Once dedicated to careful vetting and redaction—sometimes too much redaction—the “whistleblower site” is now gleefully basking in its dump of thousands of emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee—most of which are full of personal, non-newsworthy information—published with…
Wednesday evening, several news outlets announced that Wikileaks had JUST RELEASED 29 new Democratic National Committee voicemails, a brilliant bit of counter-programming against tonight’s Democratic convention events if true.
Facebook admitted it briefly blocked links to Wikileaks files containing internal Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails. The block seems to be the result of another algorithm accident that may have incorrectly determined the links to be malicious or spam.
If the Democratic party needs two things right now: to up their email game—seriously, how are there zero results for “harambe”—and better cybersecurity. Now you, dear reader, have the opportunity to guard the secrets of our potential next president by applying to be Hillary’s new Security Engineer!!
WikiLeaks firmly believes in radical transparency, the idea that the world would be better if there were no secrets. That level of transparency can be used for good, like the time the site published a video called “Collateral Murder” showing innocent journalists shot to oblivion by US troops in 2010. But not always.
A United Nations panel has ruled that Julian Assange has been “arbitrarily detained by the Governments of Sweden and the United Kingdom” and believes he is “entitled to his freedom of movement.”
It’s almost four years since Julian Assange took refuge in London’s Ecuadorian embassy. Now, according to the BBC, a UN panel has ruled that he has been “unlawfully detained.”
An agreement between Ecuadorian representatives, Julian Assange and Swedish authorities has apparently been reached, that may see him questioned by Swedish police without having to leave the safety of his diplomatic immunity bunker in London.
Who was it that said that all future wars will be won by email? Maybe the same person who sent the CIA director’s AOL emails to WikiLeaks.
This essay by Julian Assange is taken from the introduction to The Wikileaks Files: The World According to the US Empire, a collection analyzing how Wikileaks’ release of US diplomatic cables impacted foreign policy.
