BI - "Hacktivist group Anonymous, which has been responsible for cyber-attacks on the Pentagon, News Corp, and others, has vowed to destroy Facebook on November 5th (which should ring a bell)."
Idiots. What is there motivation this time? they're just dicks looking for attention. Some of their previous stuff had meaning and I could understand such as the wikileaks.. but this is just too far.
Oh my! NOT FACEBOOK!!! This has gone too far!!!!!!! It went to far the instant they caused problems not just because facebook is now about to be pwnd.
Facebook to be pwned? I doubt they'd let a site ranking #2 in the world succumb to the efforts of a bunch of script kiddies.
I hope they do it i just hate facebook XD
Your actually concerned about the well being of a social network , who is probably selling your info like stated . I HOPE THEY KNOCK IT DOWN SO BAD THAT IT WILL NEVER GET BACK UP.
Couldn't give a fuck about facebook to be fair but the fact that they're just running around thinking they can take anything down because they can is the reason I said it.
and you want unknown people to flog any and all info on you from facebook because you don't like facebook. lol What if anom sell your info, would that be different because you knew they floged it instead of you agree to T&Cs and then putting the info on there yourself? To be honest facebook probably don't sell the info they would be selling stats which is completely different, that's more like a country doing a census and they give the info away for a cost then give it away for free. Also who said they can take my info from facebook without asking me, you could sue this group for breaking privacy laws.
Weather Facebook or Anon have or sell my info, their is nothing i really do to prevent that now is there. but if one of the two that have my info are willing to go to great lengths to get at one another, than so be it. but if my return on my info is watching them go at then get it on.
I'm sick of people like you really.. You always think that people give a fuck about your personal information.. NOBODY CARES.
Well if the US government realy wants to know my favorite Rappers and TV shows all they have to do is ask, I don't really have any info on my page anyway.
Ararki - If cared about freedom and oppression you could understand. I dont condone their actions but you say you dont understand their motovations.
Dear Anonymous You have no lives :) PS: I hate you...... A lot :)
facebook has way more security than PSN
and the us gov, FBI, Pentagon?
Regardless .. Anonymous needs to stop. This will end in tighter internet retractions and higher cost for all.
actually yes. Lulsec openly said that they gave props to facebook security and that they were not able to penetrate it.
Keep in mind, they hacked the PUBLIC sites, not actually retrieving legitimate information that would be behind much more security. So it isn't as a great of a feat as the hype would lead to believe. The problem is when news sites/stations say the FBI, Pentagon, etc has been "hacked", it's not entirely a true statement. Where there have been more issues, though, is smaller organization that have been easily hacked and have had information leaked. But yeah, ironically Anon is really just making companies beef up their security now that this is occurring, and it could lead to to tighter restrictions.
i hope their work will go right and destroy some Facebook sensitive files and servers . they gone too far by selling every piece of information to security firms . this has to stop .
What's more funnier is the update that say's Anon Leadership is not attacking FB. lol! And here I thought Anon has no leadership and agrees on things as a collective. Looks like they're not in agreement on this one. Anon is like the mob in London. They don't care who they hurt and they aren't exactly united in what they do.
DESTROY FACEBOOK and MICROSOFT AHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAA
not microsoft just facebook.
If they do take down Facebook I'm gonna laugh so hard at all of my friends that use it.
If they do take down Facebook I'm gonna laugh so hard at all of my friend that use it. Fixed.
Hell yeah take that shit down i have an account but don't use it just have it for the hell of it.
Thats too good to be true. Total bluff. There's no cure for cancer (facebook) yet.
Destroy facebook, I hate it too, good riddance.
Oh so symbolic...lol Okay, I can understand Anon backing certain causes, but sometimes it gets a bit too corny. The 5th of November? Do people really have nothing better to do? Maybe they should do something more symbolic with a country like Syria (I know they recently hacked a site, but given the way things are going there, it could get worse), which I could respect far more. I think something like that would be far more symbolic to their cause then trying to hack a social network. Nerd rage bemuses me sometimes (and I don't even like Facebook that much), and I say that as a Nerd as well.
remember remember the 5th of november
Oh how it will be remembered if Facebook miraculously dies on that day. I'm glad I don't conform to social expectations and use Facebook. I'm sick of all the looks I get from people when I say I don't have Facebook, its like telling them I don't have a brain.
funny that you have to feel that way. Kinda sad actually its the not with me your against me mentality. whats there to conform too? people like you who think because you like something the masses do they are conforming is so sad. your the I liked it before it went mainstream guy. That cool guy who tells people that you listened to some band b4 they got pop. as if its some cool guy thing to say
I say bring it on! If what they claim in the video is true. Im curious if they can pull this off. Also, I really really want to laugh to my friends - farmville addicts.
Lol to all the people who hate Facebook. You have no friends!
Nah bro Facebook is too mainstream man . i hate that people like to do stuff together like social networking im so much better then them i THINK FOR MYSELF LOL im being 100% sarcastic
I doubt it. Im not a facebook user so I dont care about it but I do care about internet security in general. If Anon keep hacking the shit out of everything security restrictions, etc will eventually be put into place. The internet is one of the last 'free' places we have. Lets keep it that way!
dogonit, I was gonna say that. >.<
REMEMBER THE ALAMO!!!!! YYYEEEEEEEHAAWWWW
Eh, go for it. I hate Facebook and social networking in general. Also, duplicate story I think.
@TheEatingVodka little reading comprehension goes a long way ,cause no where in my comment was i worried about my info. but questioned a person comment who seemed to come off as if they were concerned with the well being of Facebook.
Whoopdy-freaking-doooooooo...i f you're one of the useless zealots that still even bothers with Facade-Book, you deserve to be 'inconvenienced' by the script kiddies
I hope they deliver, wouldn't be suprised if Anon failed to deliver this time. But meh, i've seen crazier things on /b/
Seems like its down now...I cant connect to it.
They might have actually done it.
hopefully it will cure my addiction
I thought it was Lulsec that went after the Pentagon and that, not Anon! Someone please straighten that out for me, because I don't think this article's author exactly knows who was to blame there.
From what I understand, Lulzsec is an offshoot of Anon, or at least they admitted to have a connection or Anon's "blessing". Being part of Anon can pretty much be by association, meaning almost anyone can be part of it in theory. It's pretty much relatively controlled anarchy. What makes this even more confusing (not to the fault of Business Insider), is that Anon in more recent news says that they are officially saying they aren't going after Facebook on November 5th, countering the declaration that they were as a whole. But given the way Anon runs, I'm sure there are a sub group of people who will try to attempt to.
I guess it's google + time.
