Facebook undaunted by hacker threats
Berlin - Social networking site Facebook said on Friday that it was not daunted by threats from international hacker group Anonymous to attack its website on November 5.
"We expect Anonymous just like we expect any other attack on any other day," Facebook spokesperson Tina Kulow told dpa.
Anonymous members accused Facebook in a press release of selling information and giving clandestine access to "authoritarian governments, such as those of Egypt and Syria".
Facebook's Kulow wrote in an e-mail to dpa, "I am happy to confirm that we do not sell user data."
Facebook's website however also states that: "There are ways that we can provide a limited amount of information to help law enforcement officials do their jobs."
The calls to launch "Operation Facebook" on November 5 were first published in online videos early August, on behalf of Anonymous, arguing that Facebook did not respect the privacy of its members.
