Apple Removes Controversial WikiLeaks App
Posted by ipodrohan
The application – while not officially affiliated with WikiLeaks or its founder Julian Assange – also connects users with the @wikileaks official twitter feed. But as of today, those who click the app’s link in the App Store get the following message: “Your request could not be completed. The item you requested is not available in the US store.”
|The move may put Apple at risk for a distributed-denial-of-service attack, of DDoS, from Assange supporters. A DDoS attack floods a target site with external requests, making it nearly impossible for the site to function normally. Hackers sympathetic to Assange have claimed credit for similar attacks on Amazon and PayPal.|
