Anonymous Avenges Wikileaks

Anonymous Avenges Wikileaks - A teenage 'hacktivist' was arrested in Holland today over crippling web attacks on Mastercard and Paypal as the cyber war between WikiLeaks activists and its opponents intensified.

The 16-year-old is alleged to be part of internet campaign group Anonymous which masterminded a string of digital assaults on companies that dropped the whistle-blowing website as a customer.

The group is also under investigation by British police in a bid to snare UK-based cyber cells.

A source said: 'We have been aware of the group Anonymous for some months now and have an ongoing investigation into their activities in the UK.

'No arrests have yet been made concerning the recent attacks.'

The arrest came as it was revealed that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, 39, has been transferred to an isolation cell in London's tough Wandsworth Prison - where he has been BARRED from using the internet.

And with little to pass time but watch TV, Assange has complained about the quality of British daytime shows.

Solicitor Mark Stephens described his mood as 'quite chipper' despite being forced to spend his days watching shows like Loose Women and Bargain Hunt.

Mr Stephens said: 'He doesn't have access to a computer, even without an internet connection, or to writing material.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
