In June of 2010, the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks released over 90,000 classified U.S. military documents detailing the war in Afghanistan. The release was a bombshell, and it put WikiLeaks on the map.
Since then, the site has released millions of more documents, including classified U.S. diplomatic cables and emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.
Now, WikiLeaks is back in the news with the release of a huge trove of documents from the CIA.
In the age of digital information, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep secrets. Even the most powerful organizations in the world are not immune to leaks, as evidenced by the recent release of over 1TB of data from the DDOSecrets WikiLeaks-like organization. The data includes confidential information on government and corporate entities, as well as sensitive personal information on individuals. While some may see this as a gross violation of privacy, others view it as a necessary step in ensuring transparency and accountability.
- In recent years, there has been a surge in the popularity of so-called “wikileaks” websites.
- These sites allow users to anonymously submit sensitive documents, which are then made available to the public.
- One of the most popular wikileaks sites is DDoSecrets, which was founded by ex-WikiLeaks staffer Daniel Domscheit-Berg.
In June of 2017, the website DDosecrets.com was launched in an effort to bring attention to the problem of doxxing, which is the practice of publishing private or identifying information about an individual without their consent. The site allows users to anonymously submit sensitive documents, and has been likened to WikiLeaks. In its first year, the site received over 1TB of submissions from around the world.
In recent years, there has been a proliferation of so-called “WikiLeaks” type websites and organizations.
