The end of Facebook? Anonymous #OpFacebook

Surfing the net I stumbled upon an “interesting” message for Zuckerberg’s social network (Facebook) from the world’s most famous group of hackers “Anonymous”. The message contains a threat that describes a major attack on the social network aiming for its total destruction. Part of the message quoted verbatim from the video says:

“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.”

Anonymous poses a fulminant blow on Facebook scheduled for November 5th. The attack, called Operation Facebook, has been set because of weaknesses in privacy options and the selling of confidential information to government related agencies as stated by Anonymous.

It is no secret that Facebook has huge weaknesses on privacy issues: increasing rumors state that this network is used for purposes of espionage by the intelligence services of the United States.

Anyway, will it be the end for Facebook? Who knows…

Update: The original source of the video was removed from youtube. We update this post with another copy of the same video uploaded to youtube.
