The hacker suspected of involvement in the first denial of service attacks against Wikileaks has disowned blog posts that reported a raid on him by local police as the work of an imposter.

They do seem to take hacking* rather seriously - just ask Gary Mckinnon.
*which seems to mean pretty much anything involving a computer and an internet connection these days. If they don't want it to be seen, why put it on the fscking internet!?
Beer because I think I need one now :)
