A 2009 interview with the founder and suspected half-vampire Julian Assange suggests possibly.


"At the moment, for example, we are sitting on five gigabytes from Bank of America, one of the executive’s hard drives,” he said. “Now how do we present that? It’s a difficult problem. We could just dump it all into one giant Zip file, but we know for a fact that has limited impact. To have impact, it needs to be easy for people to dive in and search it and get something out of it."

As Forbes points out, however, any dirt on Bank of America might be old news by now. After all, we already know what awful people they all were. Since the news was (re-) announced, stock of BofA has only fallen slightly—and that may be because they are also being sued by the Lehman Brothers estate.

Update: Oh, look at that. Bank of America shares closed down 3.18%, at $10.95, their worst day since May 2009.
