WikiLeaks uploads 300+ pieces of malware among email dumps

Mayhem

Seems less than I'd expect

So you'd prefer that they explicitly tamper with the files they receive, rather than uploading them as is where is?

Frankly the fact that there is malware like this present in the files is a better indicator that they are probably genuine.

Anyone downloading the files should be running them through antivirus etc as a matter of course, but other than flagging the file with a warning, I don't see how this is a wikileaks problem (or that of any other disclosure site)
