wikileaks
Wikileaks reports a government spy network using Trapwire to capture surveillance cameras in stores, casinos, and other businesses around the country.  Apparently agents can use facial recognition software to analyze this footage for people of interest.  The way Trapwire works is every few seconds, data picked up at surveillance points in major cities and landmarks across the United States are recorded digitally on the spot, then encrypted and instantaneously delivered to a fortified central database center.  From what I have read the fortified central database center was in Maryland then I heard DC it’s speculation the truth is the location is undisclosed no one really know where it’s located.
Trapwire was created by a private company named Abraxas which was founded by Richard “Hollis” Helms and is staffed by ex-CIA agents.  They sold the product to various government agencies, local governments, and private companies.  The US department of homeland security paid $832,000 to deploy Trapwire in Washington DC and the Seattle area.
After the Leak Wikileaks got taken down for ten days do to DDoS Attack and is still down.  This has happened in the past to Wikileaks after major leaks but never this long.  A group called AntiLeaks claims responsibility behind the attack.  The DDoS attack is apparently their way of making sure that the group can’t release any more leaks.  When asked how long AntiLeaks would keep Wikileaks down there answer was “Forever”.
AntiLeaks claims Wikileaks is a terrorist organization and they deserve to be down forever.  Only time will tell how long they can keep Wikileaks down for my guess is AntiLeaks is a major player in the hacker group space and they have the resources to take Wikileaks down as long as they see fit.
