Anonymous Announces Facebook Attack



    Facebook may want to play down the One Hacker Way talk -- at least for a couple of weeks.

    Hacker collective Anonymous has set its sight on the Menlo Park-based social-networking site again and it plans to attack.

    The loosely organized group of global hackers has recently attacked several websites in the wake of the federal shut down of Megaupload.

    Just two of its targets were, government sites and the Universal Music Group. And that was just this past week.

    Now a YouTube account associated with the collective is announcing an impending attack on Facebook and it is actually encouraging average computer users to get involved as well.

    The video specifically mentions SOPA as part of its reason for the attack.
