wikileaks is a $5B-50B entity not for free lurid content but for its user
data and metadata. Assange's brilliant wikiplan. Ed and Glenn's?


Now *that* sounds like John! =)

Okay, I'll take the troll bait here...

How would you go about verifying that his account has NOT been hacked?

How is it troll bait to ask that question, Andrew?

You think this is normal behavior for JY? It used to be posted right on
Cryptome that access logs were deleted daily or better, and it appears that
he may have lied to a grand jury about not having them.

This isn't funny. At all.

Is there anyone who can verify JYA's accounts haven't been hacked? I was
assuming this was a joke until the tweet with the picture of 1997 logs.

More evidence that the site has probably been compromised, yet again:

Excerpt from 2003 subpoena, via http://cryptome.org/cryptome-log.htm:

----- BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE -----
Hash SHA1

CRYPTOME

COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS

AFFIDAVIT

I, John Young, administrator of Cryptome, hereby declare that logs of
Cryptome are deleted daily, or more often during heavy traffic, to
protect
the privacy of visitors to the site. Cryptome does not own or know the
location of the machine which hosts its virtual private server under a
service agreement with NTT Verio. There are several international
mirrors
of the files on Cryptome, all of which, to the best of my knowledge,
delete
logs to protect privacy of visitors.

Attested and communicated to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts by this
PGP-signed statement published on Cryptome, 6 January 2003:

Logs going back to 1996? That'd be perjury. I don't buy it.

Domain is not for sale at the registrar and transfer is still
prohibited. Fyi.
