No one knows for sure, but what we DO know is that the internet group known as Anonymous says that the beta testing stage of the virus is done.
In a new YouTube video, Anonymous says the Fawkes Virus has been “initiated”.
Some speculate that the Fawkes Virus may have been responsible for that porn outbreak on Facebook last month. If so, it appears that this was just a test. The real purpose of the virus has yet to be revealed.
Over the past several weeks, the overall complexion and public perception of Anonymous has changed. The group has gone from seeming to be a bunch of hackers who like to hack into and take down websites, to a massive collective who seem more interested in the well-being of humanity.
Anonymous seems to be coming off more like Batman lately…a vigilante force revered by the citizens of the internet, but feared by law enforcement and the government.
I’ll keep my own theories to myself as I don’t want to be locked away in a nuthouse anytime soon…but I think Anonymous may be more than meets the eye. It certainly seems to be a different kind of group than it was even just a few years ago.
As for the Fawkes Virus, is it possible that it’s not what it seems. Is it somehow connected to our drones suddenly falling from the skies? We know that our drone force was recently affected by some kind of mysterious virus that the government cannot identify. Where did this virus come from?
No one knows. Regardless, here is the most recent message from Anonymous regarding the Fawkes Virus. Transcription below.
Greetings, Citizens of the world.
We are Anonymous.
When corruption and lies are attached with the system and function as one evil form of power, even the machines will side with The people. We are moving towards the new system of political and social functioning and governance in this world. We are moving very rapidly towards achieving that goal. We the people from all over the world are collaborating with each other through the Internet.
We are watching you all and your machines are working for us. The Fawkes Virus is here. It’s beta testing has completed and is now a fully armed and operational piece of weaponry. It has already been released on Facebook and will be released on other social networking sites very soon. The Fifth of November was not “a fail” as many people called it, but [only] the start of the attack. The Fifth of November is only the beginning.
You cannot run from us. We have your personal data. We have your psychological profiles. Corrupters will be exploited. The innocent will be deleted. The world will be reclaimed.
The corrupt fear us, the honest support us, the heroic fight with us.

We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
