Anonymous wants Zynga to “Remember, Remember the 5th of November”

Posted on October 29, 2012 - 2:02pm by Sean Hinz

Hackers can be quite the revolutionaries these days. Or at least they’re pretending to be. Anonymous is turning its sights on Zynga, the social gaming giant in an attempt to unshackle us from our canine oppressors. So the plan is this; on the 5th of November, Anonymous will release “the key to the data files” of confidential Zynga documents regarding executives. Secondly, if Zynga continues their plan to outsource the 5% of the workforce they laid off last week, then they will also release an undisclosed number of Zynga games for free that have been taken off their server. Here is Anonymous’ logic for this attack

"With a billion dollars cash sitting in a bank we do believe that such actions are an insult to the population and the behaviour of corporations like Zynga must change"

If Zynga decides not to outsource the work force, then the games won’t be for free, but it looks like the executive documents are going to hit the net. This is bad news for Zynga, who’s share price has been plummeting since EA opened that lawsuit against them. Their fiscal report went over well, but consumer confidence is most likely waning. Who knows what gems will be found in those confidential documents. Oh and if you don’t know what I am talking about with the title quote, go watch V for Vendetta. Anyone feel bad for Zynga?
