The hacker group Anonymous, responsible for a series of attacks on websites of governments, companies and credit card network games online PlayStation Network (PSN), Sony announced it will hold a mass attack against Facebook in November 5. The goal of the criminals is to overthrow the site, which has more than 700 million registered users.

The attack was confirmed through Twitter and a video posted on YouTube. In it, the recording says that social networking has helped governments, “selling information to users and ensuring access to clandestine security firms to spy on people all over the world.”

The 5th of November was chosen to be related to the comic book “V for Vendetta,” whose main character, Guy Fawkes is remembered by members of Anonymous in the use of the mask feature presented in the series.

They even say in the statement that “everything you do on Facebook is the social network, regardless of privacy settings,” and that “it is impossible to delete the account because the data are stored on Facebook.” “Facebook knows more about you than your family,” says the message.

The group also warns that the day of the attack “will go down in history.”

Even Twitter, Anonymous posted a message saying that he was organizing what it calls “Operation Facebook” (# opfacebook), but not all members agreed or participated in the preparation of the attack.

There are suspicions that the attacks are to try to strengthen the social network Anon +, created by the gruop. The community site for Google + service was banned by Google, which would have angered members of Anonymous.

Facebook would not comment on the threats so far.

The FBI arrested on Tuesday (19) at least 14 people as part of a broad investigation into the hacker-activist group Anonymous, according to a federal police in the U.S..

The arrests came after the group said it had invaded Apple’s servers and made attacks last year against the sites of MasterCard and Visa.

The suspects were arrested in California, Florida and New Jersey, according to another police source. The indictments have not been officially released, which is why both requested anonymity.

Before the arrests, agents had done a property search in Brooklyn and five Long Island (New York regions), looking especially computers and other computer equipment, according to the FBI.

These facilities were allegedly used by members of the activist organization, which is based on WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange. No one was arrested in New York.

FBI officials in California and Florida have confirmed that search was in progress, but did not confirm any arrests. In New Jersey, a spokesman for the agency said one person had been arrested, but did not clarify exactly what charges.

The Anonymous who authorities believe to be formed mainly by hackers adolescents and young adults, has also released several emails and other private data from police a site of Arizona.

In June, the group joined the organization hacker Lulz Security. The LulzSec already violated the Sony Website, the CIA and the British police.

Experts say that the actions of the FBI were already expected, because the actions of hackers were becoming bolder.

“I do not think anyone should be surprised,” said Josh Shaul, Application Security Technical Director, which helps businesses protect their data. “They played with fire and eventually burned.”
