KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 10, 2015:
An eight-minute video posted by hacktivist group Anonymous Malaysia, threatening the Malaysian government and the Prime Minister has been removed.
Apart from the government and Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the video which was posted on August 4, on the group’s official Facebook Page, showcased the group also declaring an “all-out Internet warfare” towards the Malaysian Anti-corruption Commission (MACC), police , along with another 150 web portals that the group “strategically” selected.
“Today we are confronting you, Datuk Seri Haji Mohammad Najib Bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak to declare a duel and challenge,” said the figure wearing the signature Guy Fawkes mask — which has become synonyms with the hacker movement — in a synthesised voice.
The group warned that the cyber attack would be carried out during the Bersih 4.0 demonstrations on August 29 till August 30 from 6PM to 5PM.
“These will be the invading base of our internet warfare.
“We are also calling for International Anonymous to join us, as to give a hand to all Malaysians to show our internet warfare,” the video stated.
Calling on the Prime Minister to resign, the group lashed out on the recent developments within the country.
The hackers claimed that the Najib’s administration has brought the country on a downward spiral and blamed him for the current downfall in economy as well as increased corruption.
The group stated the premier had failed to respond to allegations made against 1Malaysia Development Bhd , as well as perpetrating several other incidents that have occurred over the past few months including the riot in Plaza Low Yat and the fire at the Bukit Aman Police Headquarters.
Inviting all Malaysians to participate in the assault, the video signed off in the eerie and intimidating style of the internationally renowned hacktivist group, “Anonymous”.
The video was shared on Facebook by a group called Tabik Polis. It was shared 51 times.
