Bahnhof selling out Wikileaks
In 2010 Wikileaks turned into a household name. The organization released almost 400,000 documents about the U.S. war in Iraq. Later the feat was repeated with 250,000 diplomatic cables.
The releases took place via a server hosted by Bahnhof in Sweden. The notorious physical server that changed the world is now auctioned off by Bahnhof for the benefit of Reporters Without Borders.
The server, which hosted WikiLeaks during its release of classified US State Department documents, is now on sale on eBay for a price of 25,200 dollars, as of Monday.
The server belongs to the Swedish Internet service provider Bahnhof, which was rented out to WikiLeaks in 2010.
Wikileaks used that hardware to serve the so-called â€˜Collateral Murderâ€™ video, 2007 footage of US helicopter crew gunning down a group of men in Baghdad, including two Reuters journalists, apart from the Guantanamo Files, CNN reports.
