Julian Assange is considered to be the co-founder of the Wikileaks disclosure platform, which promises insight into unethical behavior by governments and businesses. However, many critics consider the 47-year-old native Australian to be a self-satisfied actor, even risking the lives of others by publishing sensitive information.

Among other things, the disclosure platform became known through the publication of explosive American documents from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Most recently, Assange has been criticized after stealing confidential emails from Democratic servers in 2016 during the hot campaign phase in the United States Wikileaks were published. This was rated as a targeted spam against the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The servers of the democracies had been cracked by Russian security hackers, according to IT security experts.
