    Anonymous Threat


    Facebook was not hacked on Nov. 5 as promised.

    a) Was the threat of ANONYMOUS on Nov 5 just a hoax?
    b) Did MZ pulled together all his IT specialist to make sure his system was well fortified?
    c) Did MZ payed his way out of this threat.
    d) Anonymous cannot in fact hack FB.
    e) Anonymous just changed it's mind.

    Just thinking out load some random thoughts.

    I'm not really sure what the case may be on that.
    It might just be that Anonymous didn't see the point.

    Facebook sees 600,000 compromised logins per day—0.06% of all logins

    I heard the threat wasn't made by the real Anonymous, though obviously there's no way to actually confirm that...

    My money is on D, most facebook "hacking" comes from exploiting the weakest link: the human element.

    Most hacking I would say. Buggers even phone you up over here.

    Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
