The days of hackers and computer geeks being pegged as pasty, ninety-pound weaklings are over. In fact, they've been flexing some serious muscle lately with tough-guy bravado, and they're intent on saving the day.

Need proof? Look no further than the international hacker movement known as Anonymous. The Guy Fawkes-masked collective just released an Internet video threatening vengeance on arguably one the world's most savage and violent criminal outfits: Mexico's Zetas drug cartel.

Claiming to be from Anonymous "Veracruz, Mexico, and the world," the YouTube video is a response to the Zetas cartel's alleged kidnapping of an Anonymous member.

"You made a huge mistake by taking one of us. Release him," says a masked, computer-voiced individual in the video.

Reminiscent of a WWE hype video, Anonymous puts forth an ultimatum to Zetas: either release the Anonymous member, or they will release the identities of local police, journalists, taxi driver's and other allies who conspire with the Zetas.

"We cannot defend ourselves with a weapon, but we can do this with their cars, houses, bars, brothels..." the video message adds, alluding to properties and possessions owned by cartel supporters. "It will not be difficult. We all know who they are and where they are."

Anonymous has given the Zetas cartel until the end of the week to release their kidnapped member.

"If anything happens to him, you will always remember this upcoming November 5th," the message states. "Knowledge is free. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forget. Wait and see."

Could this not spur and aid in the killing of a hacker ?

The Dark Net is awash with reports the person in question is already dead, apparently hacked apart with a machete. Knowing the area, if he was kidnapped, he is already dead, Zetas are brutal and have a code which prohibits from negotiations. Most likely his execution was filmed and is already online somewhere.

agreed, zetas are ex- military, they dont want to show any weakness.

Three people have been killed recently in the northern states of Nuevo León and Tamaulipas by suspected Zetas who apparently believed the victims used the internet to spread information about the gang.

A ruthless campaign of killing, extortion and kidnapping by Mexico’s powerful Zetas drug cartel has created plenty of enemies, from the Mexican government to paramilitary vigilantes to rival cartels. But now the Zetas have a new adversary: the hacker collective Anonymous.

In a video uploaded Oct. 6, an Anonymous spokesperson said that unless the Zetas release one of the group’s members, the group will reveal the photos, names and addresses of Zetas-affiliated cops and taxi drivers. (The member was allegedly kidnapped in the western coastal city of Veracruz during an “Operation Paperstorm” demonstration.) Anonymous also threatened to out journalists accused of “crapping on honest authorities like the Army and the Navy,” the spokesperson said.

“For the time being, we won’t post photos or the names … of the taxi drivers, the journalists or the newspapers nor of the police officers, but if needed, we will publish them including their addresses, to see if by doing so the government will arrest them,” the spokesperson added.

Anonymous started out as a decentralized network of online griefers. But they’ve grown increasingly political, targeting websites ranging from Visa and MasterCard (for their alleged financial blockade of WikiLeaks) to a consultancy firm linked to the U.S. military. In October, they took aim at the underground child pornography network Lolita City, and hackers linked to the group leaked personal information from the servers of the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association. Perhaps most importantly, Anonymous has provided support to the Occupy movement.

Last week, Anonymous followed up its threat to the Zetas by defacing the website of former Tabasco state prosecutor Gustavo Rosario Torres, accused by anti-crime activists three years ago of discussing a $200,000 cocaine deal with a deputy on audio tape. With a Halloween background, a message splashed above the group’s signature on Rosario’s homepage read: “Gustavo Rosario is Zeta.”

This wasn’t the first time Anonymous weighed in on the shady and rumor-filled world of Mexican political corruption. One month ago, the group launched a distributed denial-of-service attack on the state of Veracruz’s official website following speculation the recent election campaign of Veracruz governor Javier Duarte received funding from the Zetas.

Revealing Zetas associates, however, is a different matter than flooding a state website. And the Zetas have a history of making their online critics pay.

In September, the Zetas hanged two people from a pedestrian overpass in the border city of Nuevo Laredo with threats against bloggers written on a nearby banner. A week later, a contributor to social media site Nuevo Laredo en Vivo was found decapitated.

According to private intelligence firm Stratfor: “Loss of life will be a certain consequence if Anonymous releases the identities of individuals cooperating with cartels. Whether voluntarily or not, cooperating with criminal cartels in Mexico comes with the danger of retribution from rival cartels.”

This is a problem. At the very least, it’s worth noting that taxi drivers working as lookouts or mules for the cartels does not mean the drivers do so willingly. As targets for extortion, exposing their identities could mean deadly reprisal attacks, such as what occurred during a wave of violence in the resort city of Acapulco in February that left a dozen taxi drivers and their passengers dead — some decapitated by machete-wielding assassins as their cars were set ablaze.

Even worse, provoking the Zetas could lead to further attacks against social media users unrelated to Anonymous.

“Anonymous activists can threaten to reveal information about cartels or launch cyberattacks,” Stratfor says. “But even if the cartels cannot track down the individuals directing cyberattacks or releasing information, the cartels will continue to commit acts of violence meant to warn the online community about such activities.”

In other words, if Anonymous follows through (assuming they’re not just bluffing) then writing about the drug war could become even more dangerous for Mexican bloggers — and wearing a Guy Fawkes mask on a Mexican street might just become a death warrant.

UPDATE: Anonymous Mexico has reportedly cancelled attacks on the Zetas. “Our struggle is not of this type and our ideals do not go with that operation. The article published by various electronic means is completely false,” a member tells Milenio.

However, Milenio reports, another Anonymous member says #OpCartel — referencing the Twitter hashtag for their attacks — is “very much alive.” Another member warns: “The dice are already rolling. It’s not possible even for us to stop them. The first strike will be made within the few hours.”
