Title: Facebook to be hacked soon?
Post by: Alfie on August 19, 2011, 12:22:02 AM
There's a rumour (and a video) going around that Hacktivist Group ‘Anonymous’ has threatened to hack Facebook on 5th November 2011. Anonymous has denied that it is organizing or supporting an official attack on Facebook, but acknowledged that hackers associated with the group are pursuing the endeavor.

Someone posted a video on Youtube claiming to be from that group and stating his reasons for the future hack. However, the video has now been removed from Youtube.

Why would anyone give 3 weeks notice to a future victim and police that he was going to hack somewhere? Seems stupid to me and a guarantee of failure. Was it just a publicity stunt or will someone really hack into Facebook on 5th November?

I forget exactly what he said, It's something to do with information, "peoples privacy as they had discovered that Facebook is selling its users private data to the governments."

I hope they don't see other people's private data when they hack into Facebook!  :D  Oh, the irony.  :o  ::)
