The controversial hacker known as Anonymous Own3r – who calls himself the “security leader of Anonymous” – has been threatened by the controversial Anonymous-affiliated Fawkes Security collective.
Fawkes Security released a statement accusing Anonymous Own3r of launching “false attacks” against high-profile companies to make a profit.
“After several days of research it has come to our attention that your so called (false) attacks on large company's are perused only for profit, making you no better than the corrupt corporations Anonymous fights against,” Fawkes Security representatives wrote.
“We have unearthed your >>> online scam <<< to selfishly earn money from overseas media contractors to broadcast lies about who anonymous is targeting and why. Your deceit is starting to show the real ethics behind your actions. Now take heed to this warning.”
They’ve given Anonymous Own3r a 14-day deadline to close all his online accounts. If he doesn’t comply, the hackers claim they will “remove him from the Internet” and release his personal details – including location, ISP and Internet history logs – to the Interpol.
For those who don’t already know, the Fawkes Security group is the one responsible for posting a video on YouTube claiming that they’ve planted a bomb
inside a US government building.
Anonymous Own3r, on the other hand, has made a lot of headlines after claiming to be responsible
for the outage experienced by GoDaddy in September. GoDaddy released a statement saying that the disruptions were caused
by network issues, not Anonymous hackers. Update.
Anonymous Own3r contacted us to highlight the fact that the 14-day deadline passed a long time ago and Fawkes Security didn't manage to do anything against him.
Furthermore, he claims that Fawkes Security has been arrested. He hasn't provided any evidence to support his claims, but Fawkes Security's Twitter account has been quiet for the past few days.
