Oh, imagine the chaos if Facebook were to be eradicated. PC Mag reports that Anonymous is planning to do so November 5 (as in, Guy Fawkes Night, V for Vendetta, etc. etc.):
With the loosely affiliated hacktivist collective, it's always tough to know what's real, what's a feint, and what's a solo effort by some ambitious Anon to marshal the troops.
If Operation Facebook is real, it could mark a new phase for Anonymous, which in recent weeks has joined forces with the remnants of the more tightly knit hacker group LulzSec to target law enforcement agencies in an ongoing operation called Antisec.
The "press release" announcing Operation Facebook does tie it in with Antisec, however.
"Facebook is the opposite of the Antisec cause," reads the release, a full copy of which plus a video version is published below. Facebook, which "knows more about you than your family," according to the press release, "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."
The author exhorts others to "join the cause and kill [F]acebook for the sake of your own privacy."
