New Threat From Anonymous – Facebook Is Next Target

Anonymous so ominously warns in a video posted today on what looks to be an Anonymous-affiliated YouTube account.

Just whom should be expecting them? Facebook. If you believe their latest threat, that is. And while they’ve threatened it before, this threat seems a little more legit after their recent attacks on CBS and Universal Music.

The new video (with a surprisingly epic intro) asks people to download a linked program that will help them collectively take down Facebook.

Part of the video states, “While it is true that Facebook has at least 60,000 servers… It is still possible to bring it down… Anonymous needs the help of the people… The people who want to take a stand against the government… The people who want to make a difference… This is what we must do… But first… you must ask yourself, are you truly a part of the anonymous consciousness? Do you fully grasp our ideas and understand what we are? If you do… Then one thing is clear… Together… We the people… We anonymous… Can make a change… We’ve already crashed CBS… Warner Brothers… And FBI sites… Facebook is our next aim.”

The video says the attack on Facebook will happen on Jan. 28 at 12 a.m. EST. 

Watch the video for yourself and decide: Is the threat real?
