Anonymous target Goldman Sachs after proposal to reduce wages in France by 30%
Anonymous to attack Goldman Sachs in another new round of hacktivity on the financial giant after having done so two years ago.
“Please help us to destroy Twitter and Facebook account of Goldman Sachs February 14” cried a group of people on Twitter believed to be associated with the Anonymous and some happens to be French citizens.
In 2011, Anonymous published the personal information of numerous employees, including CEO of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein.
Going by the name @CabinCr3w, the attackers blasted off a tweet that directed followers to the Pastebin website which lists Blankfein’s age, education, recent addresses, and legal cases he has been involved in, as well as the emails and titles of more than eighty employees.
It remains to be seen why this new hacktivity – Operation Goldman – is targeting social media accounts of the company and chose February 14 as a date in their messages.
On Operation Goldman’s official Tumblr site, they have described Goldman Sachs as arrogant with pictures and videos showing their hate towards the firm.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Huw Pill, chief economist at Goldman Sachs suggest “a general decline in wages to regain competitiveness” for the France economy by about a third. He added that it is “politically impossible” to implement and end the interview.
The article has since attracted a number of heated debates and discussions.
