In an email posted on Cryptome, Joly MacFie cites the website Spamhaus that has accused a “Russian dedicated cybercrime host” of launching a cyber attack against its servers.

The denial-of-service attack occurred after Spamhaus posted a warning about, described as a Wikileaks mirror. There are hundreds of websites posting copies of the Wikileaks documents.

Spamhaus accuses of hosting a malware site designed to entrap unsuspecting Wikileaks supporters. The site is not connected to Julian Assange or the Wikileaks organization.

“As many of you know, both Trend Micro and Spamhaus have published warnings about a Wikileaks mirror site ‘’ which is run by the person or persons behind ‘AnonOps’ from an IP address of a Russian dedicated cybercrime host (Heihachi) on which there is nothing but malware and other cybercrime,” Spamhaus writes. “Innocent people seeking to read or download Wikileaks documents are being directed to the rogue server and into the hands of the crime gangs located there.”

Feike Hacquebord, writing for Trend Micro’s Malware Blog, says his company “assigns a very low reputation score to domain name not because of political controversy but because of actual facts about the bad neighborhood where this domain name is hosted.”

Soon after the warning was issued, the Spamhaus webite came up under attack. “For trying to warn about the crime gangs located at the mirror IP, Spamhaus is now under ddos by AnonOps. The criminals there do not like our free speech at all.”

Prior to the attack, insisted it is not a malware site. “We find it very disturbing that Spamhaus labels a site as dangerous without even checking if there is any malware on it. We monitor the site and we can guarantee that there is no malware on it. We do not know who else is hosted with Heihachi Ltd and it is none of our business. They provide reliable hosting to us. That’s it.”

“Wikileaks has been pulled from big hosters like Amazon. That’s why we are using a ‘bulletproof’ hoster that does not just kick a site when it gets a letter from government or a big company.”

The Russian site employs the services of Webalta, a Russian hosting outfit that hosts phishing fraudsters, botnet-controllers and malware-related websites, according to The Register, a British technology news and opinion website. “This has prompted anti-spam organizations such as Spamhaus to warn that visiting may itself leave surfers exposed to malware,” John Leydon writes.

“Webalta’s IP address space, a ‘blackhat’ network which Spamhaus believes caters primarily to, or is under the control of, Russian cybercriminals,” Spamhaus explains.

According to Steve Linford of the Spamhaus Project, the website also posted a press release with the Wikileaks logo.

“Because they are using a Wikileaks logo, many people thought that the ‘press release’ was issued ‘by Wikileaks’. In fact there has been no press release about this by Wikileaks and none of the official Wikileaks mirrors sites even recognize mirror,” explains Linford.

Linford says the “site data, disks, connections and visitor traffic, are all under the control of the Heihachi cybercrime gang. There are more than 40 criminal-run sites operating on the same IP address as, including,,, and bank phishes and”

A blog dedicated to exposing the Heihachi operation lists a large number of suspicious sites on the same IP address as the one used by, including sites specializing in fake ID documents, credit card info, fake watches, and steroids. “Heihachi is all to well known as a resource for scammers and other internet miscreants that uses the anonymity of the net to victimize innocent internet users,” a post on the blog states.

Heihachi’s profile fits right into the cyber threat hyped by the Department of Homeland Security and the government as it seeks to regulate and purge the internet of not only copyright infringement, but also alternative news sites.

In addition to exaggerating the threat posed by Muslim jihadists, the government has pushed the idea that there is an epidemic of crime on the web.

In April, a top White House cybersecurity aide said that transnational cybercrime is a far more serious concern than “cyberwar” attacks against critical infrastructure such as the electricity grid. Christopher Painter, the White House senior director for cybersecurity, made comments about the threat of criminal behavior on the internet at a conference arranged by top Russian cybersecurity officials in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, according to the Homeland Security Newswire.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
