Threatens to release confidential documents and Zynga’s games if the company doesn’t cancel plans to fire any more employees.
The infamous hacker group Anonymous has threatened Zynga against firing any more of its employees, after the gaming company let go 5% of its total workforce earlier this month.
In a post, Anonymous called out on Zynga’s “outrageous treatment of their employees”, and has warned against releasing confidential documents, and all of the games it has managed to steal from Zynga, for free, until the company complies with their demands. It has given Zynga until November 5th before it unleashes its devious plan.
“We have come to believe that this actions of Zynga will result in massive layoff of a thousand people and legal actions against everyone that speaks to the public about this plan,” Anonymous said.
“It will also come to end of the US game market as we know it as all this jobs will be replaced in other more convenient financial countries. With a billion dollars cash sitting in a bank we do believe that such actions are an insult to the population and the behaviour of corporations like Zynga must change.”
Anonymous has made similar threats to other companies, and have had varied success. It is unclear if Anonymous can do the kind of damaged it has claimed.
