Anonymous, the hactivist group that is famous for its attacks on the FBI, Scientology and haters of cats, has officially distanced itself from the Linux-based Anonymous-OS which it has called a fake. According to the AnonOps Twitter account, @anonops, the download is “wrapped in Trojans.” The guys behind the Anonymous-OS retaliated with an update to the OS’ ‘official’ Tumblr blog.
The #anonops on their twitter account say, ‘That Anonymous-OS is wrapped in trojans.’ Please people… in our world, in Linux and open source world, there is not virus. If any user believe that Anonymous-OS ‘is wrapped in trojans’ or ‘backdoored OS by any Law enforcement Company or Hacker’ please don’t download it! But don’t mislead the world that Linux is dangerous and has trojans!”
The OS has been downloaded over 25,000 times according to BGR and is described as being created for educational purposes and security auditing purposes.
