p2pnet view P2P | Politics:- On December 28, “Anonymous unofficially launched ‘Operation Zimbabwe’, a DDoS protest against http://www.zanupf.org.zw – web site of The Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF)”, says a post on AnonNews, going on >>>
Within three hours the web site was unreachable. At that time the attack was broadened to also include http://www.gta.gov.zw which shares an IP with most of Zimbabwe’s government web sites. Both sites have experienced heavy interuption which has not yet ceased.
“A further defacement against the Finance Ministry’s web site at www.zimtreasury.gov.zw took all news content offline, replacing it with a single message: “We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.”
“We are targeting Mugabe and his regime in the ZanuPF who have outlawed the free press and threaten to sue anyone publishing wikileaks”, an anonymous Anon is quoted as stating.
People might want to check out http://www.zanupfpub.com/ and http://www.mg.co.za/article/2010-12-16-grace-mugabe-sues-paper-over-wikileaks-story, the item suggests.
The latter item, from the Mail & Guardian Online, kicks off:
“Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe’s wife is suing a newspaper for $15-million for publishing a WikiLeaks cable saying she benefited from illicit diamond trade, media reported on Thursday.”
