WikiLeaks Relaunch Anonymous Whistleblower Submissions

(RINF) – After a five year hiatus, anonymous submissions have returned to WikiLeaks. The group have launched a new system that uses the Tor network to encrypt and protect sensitive information.

The WikiLeaks website states:

WikiLeaks publishes documents of political or historical importance that are censored or otherwise suppressed. We specialise in strategic global publishing and large archives.

Speaking to Wired, spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson said:

“We thought, ‘This is ready, it should be opened. We’re hoping for a good flow of information through this gateway.

“If you ask if the submission from five years ago was insecure, well, it would be today. We’ve had to rethink this and rework it, and put a lot of expertise into updating and upgrading it.”
