Currently accepting submissions of whistleblower leaks ?


N.B. this website was launched with an Adobe Flash plugin for displaying a graphical progress bar of file uploads, which allowed the real IP Address of the supposedly anonymous whistleblower file uploading computer to be logged, even if TOR was being used for anonymity.

The website currently uses a Javascript method of displaying the file upload progress, which only communicates with over standard web ports which should allow TOR users to hide their real IP addresses from the WSJ and from anyone who can intercept or legally demand such Communications Traffic Data.

Restrictive legal Terms & Conditions

Mainstream media groups have lots of lawyers, so some of the "small print" Terms and Conditions regarding Copyright and promises to comply with local Law Enforcement requests, are often directly contradictory to Whistleblower Anonymity protection. e.g.

Multiple Domain Name Service providers, in different legal jurisdictions ?

No is hosted in the United States of America and probably has the legal resources and political lobbying contacts to challenge any attempt at taking them offline through legal threats, but they may be vulnerable to US Government or corporate advertiser pressure.
