London: Notorious Internet hacking group Anonymous has announced its plans to launch an attack on social network Facebook on January 28.
The hacking group released a YouTube video with a distorted voice announcing its plans.
“An online war has begun between Anonymous, the people and the government of the United States,” said the YouTube video``s narrator.
According to CBS News, the announcement was made using the YouTube account AnonymousVoice777.
The group’s latest threat to take down Facebook isn``t the first. Last year, the hacking group vowed to "kill" Facebook on Guy Fawkes Day, which was November 5.
So far, nothing has happened.
According to the report, the hackers are calling for people to help them with the Facebook take-down on Saturday, stating that they wouldn``t get in trouble for participating.
