“Again we must say that we will not attack #Facebook! Again the mass media lie,” the group tweeted from the @AnonOps feed. Anonymous on Monday denied that it was planning to take down Facebook on January 28.
Facebook attack news start spreading like a fire, when individuals claiming to be a part of Anonymous posted a YouTube video that called on supporters to target the world’s largest social networking website Facebook on January 28 midnight (ET).
“An online war has begun between Anonymous, the people and the government of the United States,” the video begins. “While SOPA and PIPA may be postponed from Congress, this doesn’t guarantee that our Internet rights will be upheld.”
“While it is true that Facebook has atleast 60,000 servers, it is still possible to bring it down”, words of the Hacker Group Anonymous voice that purports to represent the group in a video posted on video sharing website YouTube. The group is planning to target Facebook in an attack on January 28.
The video also tells viewers that “there is no way you can get caught. Hundreds of thousands of us … will all be participating. They cannot take down that large of a group.”
Whether or not the video is how much true, but the group Anonymous tweeted that they will not attack Facebook.
