In aftermath of United States’ federal agents taking down popular uploading site MegaUpload and its sister site MegaVideo recently, Anonymous is back with its grandest and largest threat ever, with over 5000 people taking down 10 federal and industry websites.
Anonymous announced this via a video posted on YouTube yesterday, titles “Anonymous Message to Congress.” You can watch it above.
In the video, they say they do acknowledge the fact that MegaUpload contained copyrighted material, but taking down the site wasn’t about that at all. Anonymous wants MegaUpload back up within the next 72 hours, or they will launch their attack.
They say they have gained access to the servers of United Nations, Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, US Bank, Capital One and Chase Bank. They will take down all of these servers if their demands are not met.
They claim they have the account info of each and every account in the aforementioned banks, but they do want to reassure these clients that their imformation will not be compromised at all. Their goal is only to make a statement to the Congress. They also leave one message to the Congress in their video: “o those who support PIPA and SOPA. To those congressmen who want to vote yes on these bills. We are not fucking playing.”
Well, this seems… rather interesting.
