The Wikimedia Foundation this week announced that it has received $2.5 million in funding from Craig Newmark Philanthropies.
The announcement comes days after Wikipedia went down
in some countries as a result of a massive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.
The organization, which has long relied on donations to maintain its projects free, aims to use the funds to help ensure the security of Wikipedia and of its other sites, as well as its global community of volunteers.
