Beware, beware the 5th of November, especially if you're social games developer Zynga. The company has been targeted by hacker collective Anonymous who claim to have obtained a data file containing copies of Zynga's games, was well as internal documents that show 800 Zynga employees are set to be fired.

Anonymous say the documents reveal the company's plan to relocate all games development to Bangalore, India, a move which they claim will bring about "the end of the US game market as we know it".

Unless Zynga stops this plan, Anonymous say they will release the games online for free on 5 November. Some have questioned the point of Anonymous releasing the games for free online, seeing as Zynga do not charge for their games anyway.

Zynga has already laid off more than 100 employees recently as the social games maker has struggled to build on their earlier successes such as Farmville and Mafia Wars.
