“PARIS (AP) — WikiLeaks says that founder Julian Assange’s internet access has been cut by an unidentified state actor. Few other details were immediately available.”

Reddit has a few mainstream headlines about this today, read the comments here.

Specifically these two are of concern:

1 “Rumors online saying that he is about to be extradited, as in the Ecuadorians will boot him from the embassy to the UK Police at the demand of John Kerry.

This would align pretty well with two of the named parties in the Wikileaks tweets today.

If so, Ecuador is blocking him from internet access in the embassy.”

2 “What I saw was a random 4chan post or some s__t. A guy saying Kerry was threatening to cut diplomatic ties with them, along with the Brits. He said he worked in the intel community and was basing this off of diplomatic cables. Could be total bullshit though of course. It just sounded plausible considering the named parties in the wikileaks tweet.”

If any of this holds true, it could be very serious. I would have to guess that Assange has a “dead man’s switch” in place in case anything happens to him. Some SHA256 values have been tweeted, could this be the beginning of that switch? See the tweets below.

UPDATE: Wikileaks just released another tweet, does this mean Assange is ok? See the tweet below. It seems to me it is possible those involved in the leaks thought Assange was bluffing about his dead man’s switch, that may have caused the three SHA256 tweets to prove otherwise. I can say without a doubt there is no way Assange can release everything he knows or he has nothing to prevent the corrupt from coming after him. This seems to be a game of cat and mouse.
