Since last fall, WikiLeaks has been releasing thousands of documents from the U.S. State Department. All along, media organizations have always edited the documents to avoid naming sources. Well now, there are reports that Wikileaks has accidentally released an encrypted file that includes the names of some people who had spoken confidentially to U.S. diplomats and were supposed to be protected.
The accidental leak was brought to the media's attention by OpenLeaks, a rival of WikiLeaks started by Daniel Domscheit-Berg, formerly the German spokesperson for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Domscheit-Berg's organization claims the lapse proves that WikiLeaks is "not secure."
Meanwhile, WikiLeaks is denying the reports. A message on WikiLeaks' official Twitter feed said: "Totally false that any WikiLeaks sources have been exposed or will be exposed." The message went on to describe the New York Times, which reported on the story, as "drooling, senile and evil".
