Mastercard.com is down, and @Anon_operation just tweeted that it’s due to a DDOS attack. Of course, Mastercard is one of the payment services that cut off the ability to donate to Wikileaks.

Both attacks were part of Operation Payback, a coordinated attack on anti-piracy groups and others that started three months ago.
