Cryptogon points to an unknown file published by Wikileaks along with their Afghan war material - The WikiLeaks “Insurance” File.
Is WikiLeaks hanging a Sword of Damocles over elements of the U.S. Government?
The file, “insurance.aes256,” is ten times the size of the seven other files combined. Appears to be encrypted with AES Crypt. Wonder if it includes the 15,000 Afghan files withheld, or the original raw files, or perhaps much more, pre-positioned for public release (“insurance”) against an attack expected to come from DoD and Justice or parties unknown. A passphrase to be distributed or published widely in case of a takedown.
