KUALA LUMPUR: Police are working with Interpol and the FBI to track down those involved in the Internet “warfare” threat by Anonymous Malaysia, said Federal Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) deputy director Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Hamza Taib.

“Since the news spread, we have been working to track down those involved. We have also been working with Interpol and the FBI,” he told reporters during a press conference at the CCID office here.

“I cannot say as it is not the date yet but if it happens, it means our arrests were wrong. If it does not happen, it means that our arrests were correct,” he said when asked to elaborate on the investigations.

Anonymous Malaysia posted an eight-minute video on its Facebook page on Aug 4, calling for the resignation of the Prime Minister over recent issues.

The group threatened to wage an “all-out Internet warfare” on the police, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission and 150 “strategically selected” websites.

It said the day-long cyber attacks would begin on Aug 29 to coincide with the Bersih 4.0 rally in Kuala Lumpur over alleged corruption.
