‘Islamic State Hacking Division’ posts a kill list of 100 United States military members
A pro-ISIS group called “Islamic State Hacking Division” has posted a list of approximately 100 United States military personnel. The list has been published to purportedly call on ISIS supporters to behead them and includes their names, email ids and physical addresses.
The message says, “[W]e have decided to leak 100 addresses so that our brothers residing in America can deal with you.” and it goes on to add “Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe,” the “Islamic State Hacking Division.”

Sources indicate that the details of the military personnel including their email IDs may have been obtained from the recent CENTCOM Twitter account hack.
Back in January, 2015, the Twitter and YouTube accounts of United States Central Command or CENTCOM was hacked by pro-ISIS hacker group called CyberCaliphate. The hackers had used the Twitter accounts to post information obtained by them from the account.
The Defense Department spokesperson was unable to authenticate the information, but said the U.S. military is investigating.
“[W]e are looking into it,” the spokesperson told TheBlaze in a short statement. “The safety of our service members is always a concern.”
