The infamous hacktivist group "Anonymous" clarified that they have nothing to do whatsoever with Anonyupload, an alternative of Megaupload. Anonyupload appeared earlier this week and it claims that the file sharing website is a part of Anonymous.
The hacktivist group denied these claims and called it a scam via their Twitter posts, which reads as "FYI - We have NO affiliation with this site, and by the looks of it, this is a SCAM - anonyupload.com".
On another Twitter account Anynomous posted that "Your Questions Answered: Do not know anything about Anonyupload except its existance, no clue who is collecting donations- Anonymous".
In fact, post these denials by Anonymous, the website also accepted that they are not affiliated to the hacktivist group. The website also removed its PayPal donation button after PayPal shut down their account.
The website now states that they are not Anonymous member, however, they defend anonymity and in letters it says "IT'S NOT FAKE! IT'S NOT A SCAM". The website was supposed to go live yesterday but it had to be delayed because of financial issues.
On the other hand, a senior technology consultant at Sophos, Graham Cluley, advised that Anonyupload should not be used as user might give an opportunity to others to spy on them and eventually loosing access to their own data.
