Anonymous take #OpISIS to next level with release of 70 pro ISIS websites and 14000 Twitter ids belonging to IS affiliates and supporters
Continuing their efforts to bring down websites and Twitter accounts of IS and their supporters, the online hacktivist group, Anonymous today released a list of 70 websites believed to be operated by supporters of ISIS.
All websites listed below are frequently used by the Islamic State through
Twitter and other social media platforms for transmission of propaganda,
religion, recruitment, communications and intelligence gathering purposes.
Next to the URL you will find the company hosting content for that website.
Verification can be done by visiting https://check-host.net and entering the
website URL. It is our sincerest hope that the media use this as a tool
to show the world that the Islamic State is everywhere in some shape or form
and that companies are unaware of their customers content or they turn a blind
eye for easy profit and choose to accept bloodmoney. CloudFlare is by far the
largest offender on this list and they have been made aware of the specified
content they are protecting but chose to block us from contacting them rather
than addressing the issue. Together we can stop this from spreading and hold
these companies accountable for their less than ethical business practices.
Soon after the release of the list of the pro ISIS websites Anonymous started targeting them and downed most of them

The Anonymous have so far successfully brought down many websites stating affiliation to the ISIS or IS and released Twitter, email VPN account details belonging to them.
