Members of notorious hacker clique Anonymous have their sights set on taking down Facebook — and they even set a date: November 5.

In a video posted on YouTube, Anonymous members accuse Facebook of “selling information to government agencies and giving clandestine access to information security firms so that they can spy on people from all around the world.” Anonymous also alleges that the social networking site’s privacy settings are a sham, and that Facebook keeps your information even if you delete your account.

For these sins, the video claims Anonymous will destroy Facebook on November 5, Guy Fawkes Day.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the leadership of Anonymous had disowned the video, although acknowledged some of its members may well be plotting to take down Facebook.

In the past, Anonymous has launched cyber attacks on Sony, News Corp, Amazon, Pay Pal, Master Card, Visa and the Pentagon, among other targets.
