Contact

If you need help using Tor you can contact WikiLeaks for assistance in setting it up using our simple webchat available at: https://wikileaks.org/talk

If you can use Tor, but need to contact WikiLeaks for other reasons use our secured webchat available at http://wlchatc3pjwpli5r.onion

We recommend contacting us over Tor if you can.

Tor

Tor is an encrypted anonymising network that makes it harder to intercept internet communications, or see where communications are coming from or going to.

In order to use the WikiLeaks public submission system as detailed above you can download the Tor Browser Bundle, which is a Firefox-like browser available for Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux and pre-configured to connect using the anonymising system Tor.

Tails

If you are at high risk and you have the capacity to do so, you can also access the submission system through a secure operating system called Tails. Tails is an operating system launched from a USB stick or a DVD that aim to leaves no traces when the computer is shut down after use and automatically routes your internet traffic through Tor. Tails will require you to have either a USB stick or a DVD at least 4GB big and a laptop or desktop computer.

Tips

Our submission system works hard to preserve your anonymity, but we recommend you also take some of your own precautions. Please review these basic guidelines.

1. Contact us if you have specific problems

If you have a very large submission, or a submission with a complex format, or are a high-risk source, please contact us. In our experience it is always possible to find a custom solution for even the most seemingly difficult situations.

2. What computer to use

If the computer you are uploading from could subsequently be audited in an investigation, consider using a computer that is not easily tied to you. Technical users can also use Tails to help ensure you do not leave any records of your submission on the computer.

3. Do not talk about your submission to others

If you have any issues talk to WikiLeaks. We are the global experts in source protection – it is a complex field. Even those who mean well often do not have the experience or expertise to advise properly. This includes other media organisations.

After

1. Do not talk about your submission to others

If you have any issues talk to WikiLeaks. We are the global experts in source protection – it is a complex field. Even those who mean well often do not have the experience or expertise to advise properly. This includes other media organisations.

2. Act normal

If you are a high-risk source, avoid saying anything or doing anything after submitting which might promote suspicion. In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour.

3. Remove traces of your submission

If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used.

In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media (USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives) retain data even after a secure erasure. If you used flash media to store sensitive data, it is important to destroy the media.

If you do this and are a high-risk source you should make sure there are no traces of the clean-up, since such traces themselves may draw suspicion.

4. If you face legal action

If a legal action is brought against you as a result of your submission, there are organisations that may help you. The Courage Foundation is an international organisation dedicated to the protection of journalistic sources. You can find more details at https://www.couragefound.org.

WikiLeaks publishes documents of political or historical importance that are censored or otherwise suppressed. We specialise in strategic global publishing and large archives.

The following is the address of our secure site where you can anonymously upload your documents to WikiLeaks editors. You can only access this submissions system through Tor. (See our Tor tab for more information.) We also advise you to read our tips for sources before submitting.

If you cannot use Tor, or your submission is very large, or you have specific requirements, WikiLeaks provides several alternative methods. Contact us to discuss how to proceed.


Talk:Financial collapse: Confidential exposure analysis of 205 companies each owing above EUR45M to Icelandic bank Kaupthing, 26 Sep 2008

Thank you

Words can not express how valuable this contribution is to the investigation of the corruption in the Icelandic banking system. Thank you. Thank you!


Criminal brought to justice!

I´m from Iceland and i am happy to see this here published.

Thank you!

We the people in Iceland want these criminals brought to justice just like the rest of it´s victims in England, Holland and other countries.

These men (owners of the banks) have destroyed everything here in Iceland. They have left everything in ruins but live a good life in U.K, Luxemburg and Norway for example.

These men must be exposed as the criminals they are.

Thank you again!

Einar Reykjavik, Iceland

31JUL09 For ages - or at least decades, Icelanders have been known for honesty, reliability and their beautiful and clean country.

After being able to watch your Wikileak homepage about the Icelandic Kaupthing Bank, it seems to me that this information supports the theory that the collapse of the Icelandic banks – was mainly caused by the greedy, corrupt CEOs and other bank´s shareholders – who robbed the bank from the inside.

Thank you Wikileak for your fantastic homepage. Wikileak is of immeasurable help to minimize, hinder or reveal – corruption in any country.

I salute you my dear freinds :Þ

This information is just the proof about what those bastards have done to us.

I really do hope that handcuffs start closing from now on, otherwise there will be another uprising in Iceland.

Thank alotfor this and keep on doing a good job

Best of greetings from Iceland Geiri

Kaupthing old and new has this afternoon asked the Reykjavík District Commissioner (www.syslumadur.is) to order Iceland State Radio and TV ( www.ruv.is )to stop publishing and reporting about Wikileaks exposure analysis of the 205 companies each owing above EUR45M to Kaupthing.State Radios TV NEws started reporting yesterday details from the report.

Hej 

Islenska banken Kauptyng,,ja detta är förhoppningsvis bara början på det som ska komma fram i dagsljuset,, snälla låt allt komma fram,,, Och låt rättvisan vara dän som en vinnare,,

Islands,,framtid står annars som spel för giriheten.
 Gud vare med Islenska nationen.
 Tack för mig,,Ingunn

Thank you thank you thank you.

I´m from Iceland and I thank you very much for publishing these information. This is what was needed.

update: The Iceland State Radio was just few hours ago forced by law to stop all news about this info. But all other news agencies are talking about it and the link to this site is absolutely evrywhere on icelandic web sites. I will try and maka a contribute to you, that iis if my Kaupthing creditcard allows me to.

A citizen of Iceland

Kaupþing = krimminalbank

Thank you thank you and thanks again! If it was not for your contribution, the Icelandic people would still be left in the dark about their own future and the terrible faith that awaits them! The sad part of this amazing fiasco, is that the ordinary people of Iceland are being judged and helt accountable for something they had nothing to do with! At the same time, those responcible, conservative politicians and common crooks lay back and enjoy their stolen "achivements" given ample time to hide their crimes. These same bastards continuously attack Eva Jolie for trying to help our bankrupt nation! No shame, what so ever after leaving an entire country bleeding to death!... The "king of the crooks" David Oddsson, in his usual drunken state, tries with lies and deceipt to whitewash his treasonable work and the work ofhis goonies. The Nordic countries and the notorious IMF, are had at work to force our nation into decades of poverty. The reason! EB does not want the ICESLAVE bullshit to go to court, out of fear of European banks going bust because of it's faulty legislation and bank policies. The Icelandic people will NEVER stand for this ICESLAVE "agreement" without major changes! We do not owe this money to anybody and should only pay what belongs to us to pay! Not a penny more. But ICESLAVE is just the tip of the iceburg! The KB scandal will show where the crime really is hidden and this will shake many other countries to the very foundations! Their criminal activities and a seriouslu faulty banking policies must not see the light of day!.. That's why these bastards are afraid of these issues going to court! So the Icelandic public must be condemned into slavery to save others face... How sad is that. I am totally convinced, that if the KB crooks and the ICESLAVE bastards are not brought to justice, what mounts to a civil war will take place and heads will rol in a bloody confrontation! Thank you once more. Seventhcloud

Smoke and Mirrors

First and foremost, I have to say "thank you" to WikiLeaks for shining the spotlight on this outrage. I am one of thousands of depositors who lost their lifesavings at the hands of these greedy and immoral individuals. My savings were invested with a sound British institution, the Derbyshire Building Society, who sold out to Kaupthing at the end of 2007. Their reassurances of a 100% parental guarantee by the parent company were clearly "smoke and mirrors" and a means of parting hardworking people from their lifesavings in order to fund the lifestyles of these fat cats. In the case of the King of Smoke and Mirrors - Bernie Madoff - the USA Judge sent a strong message to the rest of the world when he sentenced him to 150 years in jail. I hope and pray that "the powers that be" will follow that Judge's fine example!

sha256sum

Thank you very much for your disclosure! Short question about the document, I receive:

$ sha256sum kaupthing-bank-before-crash-2008.pdf
  4521198a7ad676d94c9a8038bdf6a5a2d9e6b081075e7a3e9a3102519544a10a  kaupthing-bank-before-crash-2008.pdf

But in the article the sha256sum is given as:

  c565995146edd05eef1b5fa873808d83793d874aae82eb430363f44f131a84c3

I tried downloading from two different sources, but both leads to the upper sha256-sum. Any idea?

Hi, we have noticed that, and it appears to be related to an oddity in file system integrity that we are experiencing. We are working on it.

Interesting material

To me the most interesting part wasn't about any "clients" whose information is on the file.

Instead it was that about 85% of all assets involved in the exposure analysis were in "Exista" group.

Now who and what is Exista group? To quote from the report: "Exista operates in the field of financial services and has a focus on insurance and asset finance. Exista is the largest shareholder in Sampo group, Kaupthing bank, and Bakkavor group. Skipti, Viss, and Lysing are 100% owned by Exista group. [...] Exista is listed on the Iceland Stock Exchange with the largest shareholders being Bakkabraedur Holding BV, [...]"

So ... Kaupthing bank has 85% of its assets in the form of unsecured loans to Exista group. Exista group is the largest shareholder in Kaupthing bank. The largest shareholders in Exista are Bakkakraedur (which accounts for about a8% of Kaupthing bank's investments).

The long and the short of it is that Kaupthing bank has an exposure of just about 85% in unsecured loans to the Exista group investors, which according to their own assessment is vulnerable to downturns. Clever of them to spread their risk like that eh? And snug too, to lend so much money to their main shareholders.

Awesome work!

Bit by bit, our western banking system and government seem more and more to be doing business like their Soviet counterparts. More stuff like this needs to happen all over the world. Expose the bastards that run our world a and try to fool us that they are giving us "free markets" and "competition". I like those words as much as anyone else in the world, but right now it seems more like "free for those with the right friends" and "competition against those without the right friends". Please make sure every single piece of dirt in these affairs is dug up and the people who fucked us up are thrown out of power. I guess one can at least hope.

My heros, Wikileaks

Thank you so much for exposing these criminals. There is another bank which is very corrupt here, I'm still waiting for that report to leak out. Good work Wikileaks and your email response to KB Banki was hilarious. Regards, Lady in Iceland

Jumping Jack Flash.

The word Jumping Jack just got a new meaning. So that´s what ordinary people of Iceland are supposed to pay. I dont think that will happen. After the thief.(Thief´s).
