While Wikileaks website is unreachable due to a massive DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack, readers who want to access the “cablegate” material are still able to do it by accessing directly to the following IP address: 18.104.22.168 (Wikileaks home) or 22.214.171.124/cablegate.html (Cablegate direct access)
This site, although not a mirror site like its name could make you think, mirror.wikileaks.info maintains a list of IP addresses and mirror sites: some are down, some are still working.
Other sites like Gonzo Times are also keeping an up-to-date list of several IP addresses and mirror sites, but we need more sites and blogs to relay the information.
And even if direct IP address and mirror sites were all made unreachable, it would still be possible to get the information thanks to Google: the search engine has already indexed more than 2000 pages of the cablegate.wikileaks.org site, and articles can be read from the « Google cache ».
If you type the command «: site:http://cablegate.wikileaks.org » in a Google search box, it will return between 1300 and 2200 results, depending on which Google data center is answering your query, like in the sample below. Just click on “cached” to acces the cached version of the page as it has been recorded in the Google index.

If the goal of the DDoS attack was to make all this material unreachable, it should have targeted Google and other major search engines as well.
I just extracted this one from the Google cache and wanted to share it with you as it is about data privacy and the need to « demonstrate that the U.S. has strong data privacy measures in place so that robust data sharing comes with robust data protections. »….and Bob’s your uncle !
