PayPal Hand FBI IP Addresses

When the online payment system PayPal stopped the Wikileaks accounts, the company have been under fire from the hacktivist group Anonymous, in fact recently there have been calls by Anonymous for supporters to boycott PayPal altogether.

But now it seems that it is the time for PayPal to strike back, by handy over to the FBI nearly a thousand IP Addresses that were found carrying out the distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack at the end of last year, that shut the site down for a while.

According to FBI agent Chris Thompson, he has said;

“PayPal security officials were in close contact with the bureau beginning 6 December, two days after PayPal froze WikiLeaks’ donation account and the first day it began receiving serious denial-of-service traffic.”
