Attack on Sarah Palin’s website attributed to Wikileaks 'hacktivists'

Sarah Palin – who has been vocal in her criticism of WikiLeaks – saw her website hit by a DDoS attack last week, she said.

Palin said the personal credit card accounts for her and her husband were also disrupted.

"No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics. This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts," Palin told ABC News.

In 2008 Wikileaks published hacked data from Sarah Palin's Yahoo e-mail account.
