Anonymous hacktivists declared cyberwar to ISIS


The group warned terrorists to “expect massive cyber attacks.” One of the twitted: “We won’t stop opposing #IslamicState. We’re also better hackers.” The hactivists’ work this year resulted in the dismantling some 149 IS-linked websites, according to a report in Foreign Policy. They also flagged roughly 101,000 Twitter accounts and 5,900 propaganda videos. As a first result a few days ago, Anonymous were able to trace a pro-IS hacking group CyberCaliphate that uses at least at least 10 Twitter handles to a single IP address in Kuwait. The Anonymous’ goal is “to defend our values and our freedom.” Sunday evening, the group revealed their first targets: a list of nearly 1000 Twitter accounts it claims are affiliated with Islamic State.
