Anonymous Hackers Want McAfee as Security Adviser of Trump, Call for Demonstration

Anonymous has announced to hold a demonstration for the McAfee on 5th December in New York City Trump Tower, asking supporters to carry V for the Vendetta Masks for hiding their identities, along with asking them to bring banners and signs for letting the "people know what message you're trying to convey."

If you are curious to know why Anonymous is supporting John McAfee as Donald Trump's next advisor of cybersecurity, it's because "he is going to force the action around cybersecurity while others in power simply shrug it off as no big deal."

As per campaign website, "our nation is at risk from cyber-warfare." It further states that the corporations in United States are in danger because of digital crime and cyber-espionage. The citizens in the country are facing the risk of identity theft, along with their digital privacy rights. The website also states that "our kids are at risk for cyberbullying. Someone needs to raise the noise-level on all of this -- and no one is better suited to be the White House Cybersecurity Czar than McAfee."

Softpedia.com posted on November 23rd, 2016, that US is in danger of cyber-warfare, and everybody in US is vulnerable to attacks including citizens, children, and companies as per hacker group.

Trump has earlier promised that focus on cybersecurity will be the top most priority for their administration because of concerns regarding cyberattacks from countries like North Korea and China. Among Trump's written policies in this subject is its assurance to "develop the offensive cyber capabilities we need to deter attacks by both state and non-state actors and, to respond appropriately."

McAfee claims that parts of cybersecurity plans of Trump are "ludicrous", also including idea for creating the joint task force under Department of Justice direction. McAfee says that, lead technology agency in the department is FBI. But, a boy aged 15 hacked FBI just six months back.

McAfee also says that, Trump has to fire bottom half of every cybersecurity employees of the government. "Then he needs to replace them with the leaders within Defcon, Hack Miami and within every other major hacker organization in America."

It will be seen that in total how many citizens are supporting McAfee in the 5th December march, although Anonymous looks very serious regarding it.
