The WikiLeaks cyberwar is ramping up, and hackers are building a list of new opponents.

After Tuesday's arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a group of the site's supporters -- organizing under the name "Anonymous Operations" -- declared an online war on the websites of people and entities it believes to be anti-WikiLeaks.


The hackers' list include politicians, media outlets, and online servers. Notably, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she is one of many under attack by a hoard of the controversial site's online supporters.
