On 24/07/11 at 1am I recieved another mysterious direct message from The Script Kiddies – a group of hacktivists that recently attacked the Pfizer facebook page.
UNILEVER is a British-Dutch company who are better known as the people who make; Dove, AXE, Lyptons tea, Bertolli, Hellmann’s, Knorr, Rag, Birds Eye, Findus, Magnum Solero, I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter, Domestos, Cif, Comfort, Impulse, Organics, SunSilk, Lux, Slim Fast, Signal, Calvin Klein- fragrance.
The facebook pages of two brands have been attacked. These are the latest victims of a group called The Script Kiddies. A group of ‘hacktivists’ who’s motives appear to stem from addressing Social Justice issues through corporate accountability. The group took direct action by commandeering the UNILEVER pages embarrassingly branding UNILEVER as ‘Evil’ and asking UNILEVER’s fans to join a boycott of the product on their own social networking website.
They posted links and quoted a website ‘End Evil’ which advocates boycotting UNILEVER, “They were accused of negligent marketing after advertising a free offer of multivitamins (including Vitamin A) with their pregnancy testing kits after the Department of Health advised pregnant women to avoid taking dietary supplements containing vitamin A because of the risk of birth defects.”
We took the following screen grabs (click to enlarge):
