A group of Internet activists that go by the name Operation Payback posted a message to its Twitter page taking credit for the crashing of MasterCard's website early this morning. This same group also took credit for a series of attacks levied against the PayPal website. Oh, and for the disruption of a Swiss postal service bank. According to the group, all of this was done in retaliation to those companies suspending accounts linked to the Wikileaks website.
