Anonymous Hack ISIS

#OpISIS

In an ongoing cyber feud, hacktivist collective Anonymous have hacked prominent ISIS sites and social media accounts.

Oh Anonymous, sometimes you do know how to make us smile don’t you?

Anonymous’ ongoing #OpISIS (Operation ISIS) campaign has now resulted in cyber-attacks on ISIS’s recruitment efforts on Twitter and other sites. The hackers have managed to breach hundreds of email accounts and social media profiles.

ISIS has yet to respond to the attack. See, here’s one thing I’ll never be happy about. I very strongly dislike how we've called them ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State. I find it mortifying that we even consider the terms ‘Islam’ and ‘State’ when speaking about them. They’re not Islamic. They’re not a state. They’re nothing more than terrorists and should only ever be named as such.

In Anonymous’ statement they say that:

‘ISIS, we will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails and expose you... You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure. We own the internet. Remember – the terrorists that are calling themselves Islamic State (ISIS) are not Muslims.’

Anonymous went on to say that they come from all ethnicity, religions and walks of life.

‘We are Muslims, we are Christians, we are Jews, we are hackers... We come from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity. We are hackers, crackers, hacktivists, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy from next door. We are students, administrators, workers, clerks, unemployed, rich, poor. We are young, or old, gay or straight. We wear smart clothes or Uggs. We come from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity. United as one, divided by zero. We are Anonymous.’

Yeah, you read that right. They divided by zero and they’re packing Uggs.

Here's the video statement that Anonymous released as well: 


You can also see in the statement that Anonymous included a long list of accounts of people who they claim have been in touch with the terrorists. Considering that the terror group utilises social media as one of its main recruitment tools, it will be interesting to see just how far an attack like this will set them back. Here’s hoping it’s a huge setback for them.

Anonymous have always been at the forefront of hacking rather nasty folk. They hit out at The Klu Klux Klan last year following up on threats that they made regarding the Ferguson protests.

Following on from the tragic and brutal murder of the Jordanian pilot last week, I can only hope that every action taken against the terror group is swift, just and humiliating.

Though the world can never truly stamp out extremism as it lives on as an ideal, rather than a group, the sooner we’re rid of these cowards the better.
