The Anonymous hacker collective is now targeting Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg after the release of trailers for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 in which Anonymous is implied to be America’s new enemy in a dystopian future war scenario.
The video flashes images of the Guy Fawkes mask clad Anonymous member, making a not-so-subtle assertion that hacker collectives will be behind what Oliver North called a “nightmare scenario.”
“If you can hack a bank, you can hack a drone,” says UAV pilot Maj. Hercules Christopher as the Guy Fawkes mask appears again in another video that is part of the ad campaign.
Anonymous has posted a document on peoplesliberationfront.net detailing Hirshberg’s private information, including his home address, phone number and email address. The post also includes his total compensation for 2010, totaling $13.9 million.
“So Activision Why you done goofed? We are not the enemy but, well you want it you got it. Eric Hirshberg DOX. #OpPirateAllActivision,” read the post, DOX referring to a dump of personal data.
Twitter account YourAnonNews jeered at the implication of Anonymous posture itself as America’s future war enemy as well.
“If #Anonymous are the bad guys in CoD how will it be an FPS (first person shooter) anymore? We do nawt fight with gunz. We haz lazerz 4 dat,” read the tweet.
