5 of 5
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been a vocal critic of WikiLeaks, and hackers are fighting back. Computer World UK reported that her personal website was down Thursday morning local time and in an email to ABC news, said that her and her husbandâ€™s credit card information had been hacked.
The attacks come only a week after Palin â€¦ said the Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, should be hunted down in the way armed forces target the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
In an outburst on Facebook, Palin had branded Assange â€śan anti-American operative with blood on his handsâ€ť.
After the attack on her site, Palin wrote: â€śThis is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against [Assangeâ€™s] sick, un-American espionage efforts.â€ť
