WikiLeaks' Next Target: Bank of America?

Julian Assange has told Forbes that WikiLeaks’ next dump will be documents from a major U.S. bank. But which bank? It looks like there’s a good chance it will be Bank of America. In 2009, Assange told Computer World, “At the moment, for example, we are sitting on 5GB from Bank of America, one of the executive’s hard drives.” WikiLeaks was sitting on the information as it figured out how best to disseminate it: “We could just dump it all into one giant Zip file, but we know for a fact that has limited impact,” Assange explained. “To have impact, it needs to be easy for people to dive in and search it and get something out of it."
