The internet is running wild with rumors and questions about the possible assassination of Wikileaks Founder, Julian Assange. People believe he is dead after a strange blast of tweets that appear to be a “dead man’s switch” — also known as an insurance policy to ensure that sensitive data be released in the event of his death.
It all started on Sunday after the official WikiLeaks Twitter account posted three coded tweets. Many users believed that the release of the tweets meant that something had happened to Assange. It’s not unreasonable to believe considering Assange has spent the last few months releasing sensitive emails connected to the DNC and Hillary Clinton.
Julian Assange had mentioned the use of a “dead man’s switch” in the past.
From USA Supreme:
When WikiLeaks released a mysterious file labeled “WIKILEAKS INSURANCE” for people everywhere to download in advance of a huge upcoming announcement, everyone was having a second thought of what this file actually contain. This file serves as a type of “deadman’s switch” that is currently encrypted. WikiLeaks will release a second encryption key to unlock the file if they are prevented from making a planned announcement. Because of previous statements made by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, many people are wondering if this insurance file is meant to ensure that WikiLeaks can release potentially damaging information about Hillary Clinton.
While there is no official word from Wikileaks about Assange, the official WikiLeaks Twitter account continued posting normal messages after the release of what appeared to be the “dead man’s switch.” However, it is believed more than one person has access to the account.
Here are the strange codes posted by WIKILEAKS on Twitter.
