Anonymous Hackers Target BART

Anonymous is denying that it is organizing an attack on Facebook.

The hacktivist group denied the reports of a planned Facebook attack on Twitter.

"TO PRESS: MEDIAS OF THE WORLD... STOP LYING! #OpFacebook is just ANOTHER FAKE! WE DONT "KILL" THE MESSENGER. THAT'S NOT OUR STYLE #Anonymous," the group tweeted early Wednesday morning.

A YouTube video of the Anonymous threat created on July 16, began gaining prominence on Tuesday where those responsible for the video said they intended to destroy Facebook, the largest social media network, on Nov. 5.

Facebook currently has 750 million users.

In the video, the person or people responsible accused Facebook of selling users' private information to government agencies and security firms. They claimed that privacy settings are only a "delusion" as people's personal information stays on Facebook even after an account is deleted.

"Your medium of communication you all so dearly adore will be destroyed," according to the video. "If you are a willing hacktivist or a guy who just wants to protect the freedom of information then join the cause and kill Facebook for the sake of your own privacy."

Anonymous isn't a single entity. Rather it links hackers all across the world.

PC Magazine has reported the real Anonymous has acknowledged that hackers associated with the group are pursuing the endeavor.
