UPDATE: It was claimed that Anonymous was after Elon Musk because of his tweets that energized the market. A Twitter account associated with the organization denied the threat, but YourAnonCentral claims to be behind Anonymous. The relationship of the famous group with the video in question is not clear.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk became the target of Anonymous after he turned the cryptocurrency market into his personal toy. In its June 5 message, the notorious hacking group accuses Musk of destroying lives with cryptocurrency tweets:
Anonymous touched on several sensitive issues in its disclosure: from Tesla’s government subsidies to Musk’s sending humans to die on Mars.
Entrepreneur interested “a narcissistic rich guy” Hacktivists, who describe it as a spy, claim that ordinary hard-working people will never understand their plight because they were born into apartheid-era affluence. The hack group ended their message with something that looked like a threat:
Don’t Mess With Anonymous
While chasing one of the world’s richest people may seem overly ambitious, it’s nothing new to the ambitious hacktivist group.
The Anonymous movement, associated with Guy Fawkes masks, came first in Time Magazine’s 2012 poll for the world’s most influential people.
He supported anti-government protests during the Arab Spring, orchestrated the HBGary hack, launched DDoS attacks on PayPal, Visa, and Mastercard to block payments to WikiLeaks, hacked the North Korean government’s website, and even attacked Sony.
Musk posted a cryptic tweet that some believe may be his answer to the threat.
