  • WikiLeaks released 8,145 Stratfor emails on Sri Lanka, including 65 sensitive emails and 13 very sensitive emails.
  • The US Senate Judiciary Committee passed a definition of journalist as part of a media shield law in progress. The definition specifically attempts to exclude WikiLeaks stating:
    • "The definition "does not include any person or entity": "whose principal function, as demonstrated by the totality of such person or entity’s work, is to publish primary source documents that have been disclosed to such person or entity without authorization."
  • WikiLeaks Spy Files show suppliers of the FinFisher surveillance software visiting South Africa in 2012 and 2013.
  • A teenaged boy used his father's eBay account to bid on a former WikiLeaks server auctioned off by Swedish ISP Bahnhof. The winning bid was $33,000, however the father contacted the seller saying his son had bid without his permission. WikiLeaks previously commented on the sale of the server:
    • "Sweden's Bahnhof was not used for WikiLeaks Cablegate. It was used for the Iraq War logs, along with PRQ and providers in other countries. Bahnhof did not seek permission to auction the WikiLeaks server or to use it for marketing purposes, or to send the proceeds to others. We support RSF. We do not support Bahnhof exploiting the privacy and goodname of their clients for marketing purposes. Bahnhof falsely claims that the server being auctioned was 'WikiLeaks primary web server'. It was not."
