According to a senior technology consultant at Sophos Graham Cluley (Graham Cluley), the OS by Anonymous can not be a tool that is installed on a working machine. “When I was a few days ago I first heard about Anonymous OS, I immediately asked myself why anyone would trust an unknown software, created by unknown persons, posted on an anonymous page in Tumblr, a security that can only speculate,” – wrote Graham.
