Anonymous takes aim at Zynga

4.5
Anonymous has threatened to target Zynga for its "outrageous treatment of employees and actions against many developers" by releasing what it says is confidential information about the casual gaming firm on November 5.

In a post on the hacker collective's official news channel, Anonymous claims to be in possession of Zynga documents detailing plans to lay off 800 employees in a move that would signal the "end of the US game market as we know it".
Anonymous has also released an encrypted data file which it says contains copies of games taken from Zynga's servers. It intends to release the key on Guy Fawkes night unless Zynga ceases its alleged plans to make further layoffs.

Last week Zynga boss Mark Pincus issued a statement confirming the closure of its Boston studio and layoffs affecting hundreds.

-VeteranHacker- Nobody deserves to be hacked. If the employees are unhappy, there are actions they can take (doesn't mean they'll be fired fyi).

Hacking is illegal. They shouldn't be butting into companies business; it's the companies choice.


Lol ^ encourages companys to fire employees to make a quick buck.

Reign_of_Pain im with Anonymous on this,
zynga is too money hungry and deserve to be hacked.

if u realy pay attention to zyngas games,they ALWAYS make the best stuff ingame cash,which means either u can buy a "credit " card to redeem ingame to buy their stuff or u can use youre real credit card or cell pone to pay for credits,to buy items in the game.

if does happen to zynga,i say thats what they deserve.just like microsoft all they care about is the $$$$$


Or maybe it's so the can get enough money to pay their employees and still make a profit. A lot of games on the Apple app store need real cash for the best items and nobody complains...

I hope this isn't a rumor. Anonymous is about to sh*t on this Facebook game company lol. I'd just like to ask, how laying off 800 employees will end the US game market as we know it?
