The popular leaks website wikileaks.org has become the victim of it’s own success: last week, private information about Wikileaks was posted on wikileaks.org!

The information posted was a copy of a request for donations sent out to 58 people that had donated before. Instead of adding the recipients as BCC, all addresses were in the To: field, so every recipient could view the full list of addresses. 

No names were listed for the recipients, but several of the e-mail addresses used contain full names, revealing the identities of some of the donors. You can view the entire e-mail including the To: header here
