Hacktivist Group Anonymous Launches Cyber War On ISIS

“Activist hacking group Anonymous has posted hundreds of Twitter accounts, Facebook pages and email addresses it says are tied to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“ISIS; We will hunt you, Take down your sites, Accounts, Emails, and expose you,” the group said in its post to Pastebin, a frequent repository for hacked content. “From now on, no safe place for you online …”

Anonymous declared digital war on all Islamist extremists following the terrorist attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo last month, in which attackers with loose ties to ISIS and al Qaeda killed 12 people.

Monday’s posting includes over 800 Twitter accounts, 12 Facebook pages and upwards of 50 email addresses. Most of the Twitter and Facebook pages appear to have been taken down by Anonymous.”
