Anonymous to release Facebook malware? Is it real?

 Anonymous did not take down the social network a few days ago like some thought, however it seems they may be changing their plan. A few days ago people noticed that they posted a video message saying they were going to invade Facebook with a highly sophisticated piece of malware that would spread through the social network. BitDefender has also detected (via SafeGo) a piece of malware that matches some of the description that is talked about in the video.

 So is this malware actually from Anonymous or is it a hoax? Why would Anonymous decide to start spreading malware instead of its normal actions? Is the malware that BitDefender detected the malware that Anonymous was talking about or is it something else? We will have to wait and see what happens. If more info becomes available I will post about it.
