WikiLeakS.org domain name expires at Dynadot.com

| | Comments (2)

The WikiLeakS.org "uncensorable anonymous whistleblower website" domain name appears to have expired at Dynadot.com

  • Is this part of the process transferring it away to another Domain Name Registrar ?

  • Is this administrative incompetence by the Wikileaks team in not paying the annual fee of $9.25 on time ?

  • Is this incompetence or malice by the Dynadot.com domain name registrar company in not allowing Wikileaks to renew the domain name ?

  • Or does this means that another Court injunction has been served (see the Bank Julius Baer court case) ?

Obviously WikiLeaks.org is no longer pointing at the reverse web proxy server front end in Sweden at http://88.80.13.160 or https://88.80.13.160

You should try some of the other "Cover Name" domain names

Remember that there are no leaked documents on this technical and ethical issues discussion blog here at WikiLeak.org (with the "S")., which is not part of the WikiLeakS.org project, and is not one of their "Cover Names" either.

Update:

The WikiLeakS.org domain name seems to be coming back to again, slowly, but until the DNS propagation is complete, it will still not point to IP address 88.80.13.160 for everybody.

And by the way, your last claims have again been imprecise and misleading. amongst many other things please be noted that the main download link for a document is still pointing to SSL.

apart from that, you are pointing people to places like hushmail for secure services. you might wanna rethink that. so quit this cheap propaganda trying to spread doubt and confusion and start doing something useful.

@ nothing to worry -

Again this could be resolved by joining the chat and asking whats up.

Why would anyone who values their privacy want to use an IRC channel ?

How many people do you expect to be able to find the url for such an IRC channel, when the main domain name no longer points to the right IP address ?

And by the way, your last claims have again been imprecise and misleading. amongst many other things please be noted that the main download link for a document is still pointing to SSL.

Perhaps you should check your facts and actually read the previous blog entry.

That was no SSL or Tor link, as there is now, on the download pages two days ago, when the previous blog article was written.

You can see the Template revision history at ;

http://wikileaks.org/w/index.php?title=Template%3ALeak&diff=36733&oldid=36417

which shows that the SSL and Tor links were only added on the 4th October i.e. today, after the previous style of download links were changed on 26th September.

apart from that, you are pointing people to places like hushmail for secure services. you might wanna rethink that.

Why ? Hushmail is still far more secure and anonymous than, say, hotmail or gmail or yahoo mail, or your local ISP's POP3 account.


so quit this cheap propaganda trying to spread doubt and confusion and start doing something useful.

How about you addressing some of the valid constructive criticisms of the WikiLeakS.org project instead of insulting a potential supporter of the scheme ?

About this blog

This blog here at WikiLeak.org (no "S") discusses the ethical and technical issues raised by the WikiLeakS.org project, which is trying to be a resource for whistleblower leaks, by providing "untraceable mass document leaking and analysis".

These are bold and controversial aims and claims, with both pros and cons, especially for something which crosses international boundaries and legal jurisdictions.

This blog is not part of the WikiLeakS.org project, and there really are no copies of leaked documents or files being mirrored here.

Now that the WikiLeakS.org project is defunct, so far as new whistleblower are concerned, what are the alternatives ?

The LeakDirectory.org wiki page lists links and anonymity analyses of some of the many post-wikileaks projects.

There are also links to better funded "official" whistlblowing crime or national security reporting tip off websites or mainstream media websites. These should, in theory, be even better at protecting the anonymity and security of their informants, than wikileaks, but that is not always so.

New whistleblower website operators or new potential whistleblowers should carefully evaluate the best techniques (or common mistakes) from around the world and make their personal risk assessments accordingly.

Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers and Political Dissidents

The WikiLeakS.org Submissions web page provides some methods for sending them leaked documents, with varying degrees of anonymity and security. Anybody planning to do this for real, should also read some of the other guides and advice to political activists and dissidents:

Please take the appropriate precautions if you are planning to blow the whistle on shadowy and powerful people in Government or commerce, and their dubious policies. The mainstream media and bloggers also need to take simple precautions to help preserve the anonymity of their sources e.g. see Spy Blog's Hints and Tips for Whistleblowers - or use this easier to remember link: http://ht4w.co.uk

WikiLeakS Twitter feeds

The WikiLeakS.org website does not stay online all of the time, especially when there is a surge of traffic caused by mainstream media coverage of a particularly newsworthy leak.

Recently, they have been using their new Twitter feeds, to selectively publicise leaked documents to the media, and also to report on the status of routing or traffic congestion problems affecting the main website in Stockholm, Sweden.

N.B.the words "security" or "anonymity" and "Twitter" are mutually exclusive:
