Wikileaks.info and Wikileaks.org are not Wikileaks

At this time of writing, the domains wikileaks.info and wikileaks.org do not mirror the original content of the Wikileaks Project.
Be warned if you visit these sites.
The domains wikileaks.info and wikileaks.org lead to a hosting platform of a so called bullet-proof hoster. The hoster webalta.ru and their reseller heihachi.net are known as also hosting phishing and malware sites. This is why Anti-Spam companies like Spamhaus and Trend Micro warned explicitly to visit these sites.
