Anon Operation Payback Wikileaks

The folks behind Anon are calling this operation, Operation Payback and are bringing down websites which have anything to do with blocking payments or funding to Wikileaks.

Visa.com Website Down

Anon members are actually members of the notorious 4Chan board who have their share of fun DDoSing websites. They have in the past taken down several popular sites including Tumblr, Gawker Media, RIAA and MPAA among others. Currently Visa.com is down, so it looks like they were able to hit the target this time too.
