“Remember, remember the 5th of November. The gunpowder, treason and plot. I know of no reason for which the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.” -V
In four days the hacker network known as Anonymous, will make headlines with either successful or failed attempts at attacking various sites, governments and institutions.
It is yet unclear if they will deliver on an unverified threat to take down Facebook and on publishing the names of government officials linked to the drug cartel Zetas in Veracruz. The reason being, that since they are an anonymous group, there is no way of telling whether or not the threats actually come from them or from fans/copycats who want to get their two minutes of fame.
What is certain is that we can expect some sort of activity at a large scale on Nov. 5th, as it is the key date in the Guy Fawkes story, later portrayed in the movie “V from Vendetta” and from which the group takes its visual identity and inspiration.
The question is, how large will the attack(s) be? Is this a countdown to meltdown? Only time will tell.
These are interesting times we are living in.
“Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.” -V
