Well-known group of hackers, Anonymous, which has been responsible for Cyber Attacks, plans to destroy the World’s most popular and widely used social network, Facebook.
A video uploaded on YouTube named as ‘Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011‘ which claims to be uploaded by Anonymous, announces that the group will be attacking Facebook on November the 5th. The Description of the video reads:
Operation FacebookDATE: November 5, 2011.TARGET: https://facebook.comPress:Twitter : https://twitter.com/OP_FacebookIrc.Anonops.Li #OpFaceBookMessage:
Attention citizens of the world,
We wish to get your attention, hoping you heed the warnings as follows:
Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed. If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill facebook for the sake of your own privacy.
Facebook has been selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so that they can spy on people from all around the world. Some of these so-called whitehat infosec firms are working for Arabian governments, such as those of Egypt and Syria.Everything you do on Facebook stays on Facebook regardless of your “privacy” settings, and deleting your account is impossible, even if you “delete” your account, all your personal info stays on Facebook and can be recovered at any time. Changing the privacy settings to make your Facebook account more “private” is also a delusion. Facebook knows more about you than your family. http://www.physorg.com/news170614271.html
You cannot hide from the reality in which you, the people of the internet, live in. Facebook is the opposite of the Antisec cause. You are not safe from them nor from any government. One day you will look back on this and realise what we have done here is right, you will thank the rulers of the internet, we are not harming you but saving you.
The riots are underway. It is not a battle over the future of privacy and publicity. It is a battle for choice and informed consent. It’s unfolding because people are being raped, tickled, molested, and confused into doing things where they don’t understand the consequences. Facebook keeps saying that it gives users choices, but that is completely false. It gives users the illusion of and hides the details away from them “for their own good” while they then make millions off of you. When a service is “free,” it really means they’re making money off of you and your information.Think for a while and prepare for a day that will go down in history. November 5 2011, #opfacebook . Engaged.This is our world now. We exist without nationality, without religious bias. We have the right to not be surveilled, not be stalked, and not be used for profit. We have the right to not live as slaves.
We are anonymousWe are legionWe do not forgiveWe do not forgetExpect us
Also, Anonymouys has confirmed via Tweet that that only some of anonymous members are of the view to destroy Facebook, and not all of Anonymous agrees with it.
Will Anonymous get success in hacking the world’s No.1 communication center? Let’s see what happens on 5th November.
