This is not a simple DOS attack it is govt conspired. So grab the peanuts this is going to be a good show.
The situation changed since then but companies are doing this and certainly the possibility exists under pressure from the US government.
Guess you might expect that when you release SECRET documents.
I have no sympathy for Mr. Assange, like it or not secrets are a necessary function of our government and this is an assault on our government.

Not sure which because I haven't looked it up but either the registrar for wikileaks.org or the company hosting the nameservers dropped them. There is no way to direct anyone to the right IP when they type in wikileaks.org . It's not a conspiracy as some would have you believe, these companies decided to no longer provide them services. Simple as that. Paypal who was offering them services for donations and Amazon who was hosting their site did the same thing.
