A column on 12 July suggested that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had hacked into the security services and published information which got people killed.

Mr Assange asks us to clarify that Wikileaks does not itself ‘hack’ but provides a secure facility for anonymous sources to deposit information online.

While the U.S. government has warned that Wikileaks disclosures put lives at risk, no such deaths have to date been reported.
