The Anonymous group of hacktivists is making good on its promise to attack those helping to censor WikiLeaks, the latest victim being PostFinance, who’s website has become the target of distributed denial of service (DDoS) after the Swiss bank closed the account of Julian Assange.

The bank said Assange's account came under scrutiny because he became a high profile individual and that it plans to transfer the funds (31,000 euros according to WikiLeaks), to another account of his choosing.
