Currently PayPal.com is completely down as you can see from the screenshot above. Earlier today the PayPal blog was taken down after they blocked payments to Wikileaks, PayPal has claimed that no-one had contacted them to stop payments to Wikileaks.

Earlier today 4Chan members had also brought down MasterCard, A Swiss Bank and Visa websites through DDoS attack. Both and  suspended Anon accounts earlier today, making this battle even more prolific. When this battle will end is not certain, but Wikileaks has definitely take a new twist altogether.

PayPal Down

Update: PayPal.com looks to be down even after an hour. Down for me or Everyone also confirms the same.

Update 2: Only http://paypal.com seems to be down, www.paypal.com seems to be working fine. If you type paypal.com in your browser it does not work, if you type www.paypal.com it works Ok. Thanks @hp_lifelive.
