Anonymous’ member revealed that the service will be decentralized and will be based on peer-to-peer service unlike Wikileaks thus making Tyler rather immune to closure and raids. The site will serve as a haven for whistle blowers where they can publish classified documents and information.
The hacker revealed to Voice of Russia in an emailed interview “Tyler will be P2P encrypted software, in which every function of a disclosure platform will be handled and shared by everyone who downloads and deploys the software.”
One time supporter of Wikileaks, Anonymous criticized the whistle blowing site because of the recent funding techniques it employed – a paywalled access to the files which were previously available without any restrictions. Anonymous released a statement claiming that Wikileaks “betrayed” the hacking collective by using methods such as “rabid scrounging for money”. Following this they not only withdrew support for the site but also Julian Assange.
