Wikileaks: We're under cyber attack

The whistleblower website WikiLeaks is under cyber attack, it said via Twitter Sunday.

The announcement came shortly before the site is expected to release an enormous new cache of secret documents, possibly of United States diplomatic material.

The site is experiencing a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack, it said. That's an effort to make a website unavailable to users, normally by flooding it with requests for data.

-----------------------

UPDATE: The report will still be released Sunday night even if site is down, WikiLeaks states

So who's behind it: U.S. Government or 4chan?  :x
