Net attacks because of Assange?

Net attacks because of Assange?
Internet  attacks blocked access to several popular Swedish web sites for part Tuesday, local police said, linking the outage to the controversy surrounding WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. ‘Every time something happens in the Assange affair there are more attacks on the Internet in Sweden,’ a national police computer expert, Anders Ahlqvist, said. ‘I have the impression that an inventory of the state of security of the web sites of major Swedish businesses is being drawn up.’  The sites of major banks, such as SEB and Swedbank, were hit on Monday, as were those of the national railway company SJ and the TT news agency.  Complaints were filed during the day, but have not been centralised, Ahlqvist said, refusing to say whether police had evidence pointing to pro-Assange groups.
