Anonymous has made a bold statement! and plans to  shutdown the internet according to their press release  it states – “March 31st A DAY OF DARKNESS”  Pastebin post, the group that has managed the breakdown of big corporates and threatened the safety of government websites, has decided it needs to teach Wallstreet a lesson by taking Operation Global Blackout to new heights: according to the statement -“To protest SOPA, Wallstreet, our irresponsible leaders and the beloved bankers who are starving the world for their own selfish needs out of sheer sadistic fun, On March 31, anonymous will shut the Internet down,” says the group.

Their press release  explains how the group intends to shut down the internet, which includes disabling “the 13 root DNS servers of the internet”. This will leave internet according to them pretty much inaccessible.

Not sure if this is a April’s fools day joke? lately anything goes when it comes to the all things internet.

Here is a detailed blog written by Andy Greenberg  @FORBES  very interesting.

Anonymous Plans To Take Down The Internet? We’re Being Trolled

Exactly six weeks from today, Anonymous will pull off its greatest and most destructive stunt of all time: Taking down the 13 servers that act as the core address book for everything from the Web to email, essentially blacking out the Internet in a protest of copyright law and Wall Street greed.

Or far more likely, six weeks and one day from today, the hackers will announce via a very-much-still-working Internet that it was all a highly provocative April Fool’s joke, another example of the dare-you-to-react trolling that Anonymous has refined to an art form
