Anonymous fulfill their promise of taking down ISIS supporters across cyber world
The hacktivist collective Anonymous has claimed victory in its fight against the terrorists by taking down as many as 1800 Twitter accounts and 50 Facebook pages belonging to various supporters of ISIS. Anonymous had announced the fight against ISIS and its cyber backers through a concerted campaign called #OpISIS last month. The OpISIS was announced after the brutal killings of 12 people in Charlie Hebdo office in Paris.
In a new video posted on YouTube, Anonymous has warned of further action against the ISIS and their supporters. It grandly stated that “You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure. We own the Internet.”
In a paste on Pastebin, the hacker collective listed nearly 800 Twitter accounts, 12 Facebook pages and over 50 email addresses that it said were attacked because of their suspected ties to ISIS.
The Anonymous also stated why they were against ISIS and its supporters
We Are: Muslims, Christians, Jews…
We Are hackers, crackers, Hacktivist, 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 rugs, we are hedonists, ascetics, joy riders or activists.
We come from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity.
UNITED AS ONE, DIVIDED BY ZERO…
We Are Anonymous.
-REMEMBER…THE TERRORISTS THAT ARE CALLING THEMSELVES ISLAMIC STATE,(ISIS), ARE NOT MUSLIMS!!!.
Anonymous has started #OpISIS by putting up a video (now unavailable) on YouTube stating that they would track down their websites and social media networks and take them down. “We, Anonymous around the world, have decided to declare war on you the terrorists,” Anonymous had stated in January.
Techworm ran through random checks on the Twitter accounts mentioned on the Paste and found them to be suspended but a few seemed to be working and tweeting as usual.
