    Default Wikileaks Loses Amazon Hosting - Moves Back To Sweden

    Zerohedge is tweeting that Wikileaks is "over" as the hosting has been taken down by Amazon -

    Confirmation, anyone ?

    Wikileaks Loses Website



    Submitted by Tyler Durdenon 12/01/2010 14:07 -0500






    And an update from Reuters: "Amazon.com ceases hosting services for WikiLeaks website -Senator Lieberman" and "DHS says Amazon has agreed to stop hosting WikiLeaks." Game Over
    It seems the days of Wikileaks are over. The Associated Pressreports that the website appears to have lost its host. The question now is who will be the next Wikileaks.



    The website of WikiLeaks, the organization that just released a trove of sensitive U.S. State Department documents, appears to have lost or left its main Web host, Amazon.com.

    The main website and a sub-site devoted to the diplomatic documents were unavailable from the U.S. and Europe on Wednesday, as Amazon servers refused to acknowledge requests for data.

    Availability of the sites has been spotty since Sunday, when it started to come under a series of Internet-based attacks by unknown hackers. WikiLeaks dealt with the attacks in part by moving to servers run by Amazon Web Services, which is self-service.

    Amazon.com Inc. would not comment on its relationship with WikiLeaks or whether it forced the site to leave. Messages seeking comment from WikiLeaks were not immediately returned.
    Below are the Wikileak mirror pages. So far we can't seem to access any of them:

    AP is saying that Wikileaks has returned to its Swedish hosting to avoid the cyberattacks on the Amazon hosting.

    Will the drama never end ?

    Why don't they just send the whole lot out on discs to the main press agencies?

    I weary of this.

    Are you familiar with the term "history insurance"? Just download the complete wikileaks archives from various torrent trackers and be done with it.

    P.S.: Verify the MD5 hash to make sure the archives have not been tampered with.

    According to SkyNews.
    WL moved to Amazon after DDOS on original servers.

    Very strange, moved to Amazon on the day of the leak.
    Us reports WL 'dropped' other sources saying they left.

    They should have mirror websites, which they could download it from the nearest site to reduce the downtime factor.

    Looks like they do have mirror sites according to the OP. All the links above in the OP seem to be working fine at the moment.

    Now Paypal has nuked Wikileaks too, no more donations for poor Julian.
