Hackers Plan to "Kill" Facebook

Get Free iOS apps by email! A shadowy collective of hackers known for their political cyber attacks has aimed their cross-hairs on Facebook. The group, known only as "Anonymous", has been rallying against purported government and corporate corruption. It has been held responsible for cyber-attacks on the Pentagon, News Corp and various banks. Last month as many as 20 arrests were made of suspected Anonymous hackers in the U.S., UK, and the Netherlands. Anonymous allegedly told the FBI earlier this year, ""Your threats to arrest us are meaningless to us as you cannot arrest an idea. There is nothing - absolutely nothing - you can possibly to do make us stop." Last month the group created a Twitter account and uploaded a YouTube video, called 'Message from Anonymous: Operation Facebook, Nov 5 2011', to highlight its intentions - and has urged those willing to rise up against Facebook to join it. The mysterious group claims Facebook abuses user policy by selling personal information and working with the government to spy on citizens. They also accuse Facebook of permanently owning all data you upload to your profile, regardless of whether or not you delete it. So what do you think? Is Facebook being honest when it says all of our information is safe and sound? And ultimately, do you believe Anonymous will succeed in crashing Facebook for any significant period of time?
