Goldman Prepares For Valentine's Day Hack

Press Conference

According to Anonymous’ Twitter account, the hacktivist group wants to shut down Goldman Sachs’ Facebook and Twitter pages on Valentine's Day to express its disdain for the financial behemoth.

The International Business Times reports that the group tweeted out a request to its 869,000-plus Twitter followers on Thursday to join in the cyberattack.

Anonymous released several e-flyers in several languages from its various Twitter accounts. All the e-flyers say the attack will involve three steps: First, Anonymous is encouraging supporters to report the Goldman Sachs Facebook and Twitter accounts as spam. Then, the flyer provides a URL where users can fill out an abuse form on Twitter (you can do the same on Facebook), reporting Goldman Sachs for Twitter malfeasance. In the final step, Anonymous followers are asked to make 'friendly' phone calls to Goldman Sachs' offices in London, Paris or Dublin, depending on which flyer they saw.

'Operation Goldman Sachs' is being run through an official Tumblr page. '#OpGm' isn't the first time that Anonymous targeted Goldman Sachs.
