December 11, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
A cyber activist group known as "Anonymous" plans to publish parts of confidential U.S. diplomatic cables just like WikiLeaks.The group is encouraging supporters of WikiLeaks to search through leaked cables on the website and publish files that have been least exposed.

This week, Internet activists brought down credit card websites which had stopped processing donations to WikiLeaks in retaliation.

The spam attacks were labeled as "Operation Payback."
