A video spreading across the web purportedly is from the ‘hacktivist’ group Anonymous, which claims was responsible for the BlackBerry outage. The video is likely a fake, given it doesn’t use Anonymous’ typical symbols and language, and doesn’t even describe how they took out the server. However, the video does use the same voice-over as heard in previous Anonymous videos. RIM has also made it clear it was more than likely a hardware issue (core switch) that caused the outage. Nonetheless, the video is a bit humorous at least. Do you think a hacker organization like LulzSec or Anonymous could be capable of taking out a BlackBerry server? RIM is still investigating the root cause for the hardware failure.
