Anonymous Allegedly Threatens to 'Kill' Facebook

A YouTube video says the hacktivist group will "destroy" the social networking site on Guy Fawkes Day.

PCWorld: A video posted to YouTube last month says that the hacktivist group Anonymous will "destroy" Facebook on Guy Fawkes Day, November 5. "Kill Facebook for the sake of your own privacy," advises the voice on the video.

However, security experts say the video may not really be the work of actual members of the Anonymous group. Trend Micro's Rik Ferguson notes that the video "was posted almost a month ago and yet has not been widely publicised, or publicised at all, on the usual Anonymous channels. The Twitter profiles that appear to be associated are inactive."
