Throughout the 2016 election and for the better part of this year, WikiLeaks sent private messages via Twitter to the president’s deadlifting adult son Donald Trump Jr., according to newly leaked correspondence first reported by The Atlantic. Trump Jr. only occasionally responded and apparently ceased all…
If you tried visiting WikiLeaks late Wednesday evening, you might’ve gotten the impression that the website was hacked. For now at least, that doesn’t appear to be the case.
Astronomers, doctors and other experts alike are in total agreement on one point—don’t stare at a solar eclipse without eye protection unless you want to damage your vision or go blind, you goddamn idiot.
Attempting to figure out what’s going on in Julian Assange’s head is a daily struggle. After moving into the Ecuadorean embassy in London seven years ago to avoid extradition to Sweden on since-dropped sexual assault allegations, the 46-year-old has remained holed up there with Twitter as his main means of…
On Wednesday, WikiLeaks released the latest issue in its ongoing Vault 7 series—a trove of secret or otherwise classified US Central Intelligence Agency files from 2013 to 2016 describing previously undisclosed malware and viruses.
Late last week, Pamela Anderson released yet another impassioned missive extolling the supposed virtues of sun-starved WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, titled “Why My Heart Stands With Julian.”
The CIA has had the ability to turn routers and network access points into surveillance devices for years, according to secret documents published by WikiLeaks on Thursday.
Winter was setting in and some of Chelsea Manning’s most devoted followers began showing all the signs of doubt. Days before the 2016 election, the 28-year-old had tried for a second time in only a few months to end her own life.
Have you seen that FBI file, purporting to be about the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich? Kim Dotcom, who thrust himself into the story recently by telling Sean Hannity that he had evidence Rich had sent documents to Wikileaks, published the document on Twitter, helping to spread it online. Dotcom now acknowledges that…
Swedish prosecutors just announced that they are dropping the rape investigation against Julian Assange, the cofounder of Wikileaks. But it’s not yet clear if Assange will leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London anytime soon.
After seven years behind bars, Chelsea Manning was released early Wednesday morning from the Fort Leavenworth disciplinary barracks in Kansas.
Risk should be a boring movie. Sure, it’s the latest documentary from Academy Award-winner Laura Poitras, but it’s also about WikiLeaks. Haven’t we all had enough of Julian Assange and his cadre of world-warping weirdos? The thing is, you’ve never seen Assange like this. You’ve never seen him up close and ugly. And…
Donald Trump no longer loves WikiLeaks. In fact, the president so expressively does not love the organization that he endorsed the idea of arresting founder Julian Assange on Friday. Which is weird because Trump literally announced, “I love WikiLeaks” at a rally in October. Trump now swears the world misunderstood him.
Filmmaker Laura Poitras has been documenting Julian Assange’s exploits for six years. In that time, the Wikileaks founder has gone from liberal darling to Sarah Palin’s favorite rootin’-tootin’-techy-guy. Now, Poitras has reached a point that she feels the story can be told and she’s released a trailer for her new…
On Tuesday March 14th, a group of former and inactive Mormons—who have leaked dozens of internal documents exposing the inner workings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—sent a legal letter to the LDS Church warning that MormonLeaks has no intention of ending their crusade for transparency.
It’s easy to call Julian Assange a big, bratty man-baby. Much to the world’s dismay, however, the WikiLeaks founder is doing things a little bit differently with his recent disclosure of CIA hacking documents. Assange is actually being kind of helpful.
There isn’t much funny about the CIA’s covert hacking operations or the WikiLeaks dump that put thousands of documents about them on the internet on Tuesday. Some of the secret code names for these operations are pretty funny, though. Those spooks at Langley must have a sense of humor.
Here we go again, gumshoes. WikiLeaks (read: Julian Assange) says it acquired a massive cache of CIA documents related to the agency’s cyberwar efforts. The information therein, WikiLeaks claims, reveals covert CIA hacking tools that can take over iPhones, Android phones, TVs, and pretty much any type of computer.…
