‘Anonymous-OS’ is fake and packed with malware, Anonymous says

Hacker group “Anonymous Operations” has confirmed that the custom Linux-based operating system released under its name earlier this week is not a platform it developed. “The Anon OS is fake,”

The group posted on Twitter Wednesday evening. “It is wrapped in trojans.” The desktop operating system was released earlier this week by individuals claiming ties with Anonymous.

It is based on popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, and it ships with a number of hacking tools pre-installed. According to Anonymous, it also ships with a variety of malware. The team behind Anonymous-OS responded to the group’s claims, denying that its platform contains any malicious software. “The #anonops on their twitter account say ‘That Anonymous-OS is wrapped in trojans,’ ”

The Developer group wrote on its Tumblr blog. “Please people… in our world, in Linux and opensource world, there is not virus. If any user believe that Anonymous-OS ‘is wrapped in trojans’ or ‘backdoored OS by any Law enforcement Company or Hacker’ please don’t download it! But don’t mislead the world that Linux is dangerous and has trojans!”   <– Not 100% correct,, any and every computer system is VULNERABLE! including LINUX .. wherein a few months ago .. hackers hacked into Linux OS and stole Thousands of Dollars worth of Electronic currency aka BITCOINS.

From the Last few days I’ve seen a lot of bloggers posting about this OS and also some Indian Bloggers who were making plans to download the same and try it out on VMware..

I have been going to each bloggers page and posting links and warning in their comment box to stop them from DOWNLOADING this MALWARE, because I received a tweet from the Official Anonymous PR saying this OS is a MALWARE and is not supported by the core group of the ANONYMOUS initiative.
