One bunch that I most definitely do not want to piss off is Anonymous. Those people don't fuck around and can absolutely ruin your day.
It looks like those raghead assholes in ISIS are about to find that out.
I read yesterday that ISIS was using Playstations to communicate. Anonymous is going to have a field day with that kind of shit.
When it comes to cyber war, Anonymous is good at what it does.
After claiming responsibility for the Paris terrorist attacks last week, ISIS has a new foe.
Hacker collective Anonymous posted a video Saturday on YouTube in which it declared a cyber war on ISIS. In the nearly two-and-a-half-minute video, a person wearing the group’s signature Guy Fawkes mask read a statement in French promising that the hacktivist organization would attack ISIS in cyberspace with the ultimate goal of weakening the terrorist organization.
“Expect massive cyber attacks,” the person said. “War is declared. Get prepared. Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down. You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go.”
After the attack on Charlie Hebdo in January, Anonymous posted a video that said it would attack terrorists in connection with the killings. Soon after, it brought down sites allegedly connected with terrorism (including a dating site for ISIS members) and claims to have taken down tens of thousands of Twitter accounts of people suspected of having ISIS connections.
This, though, is different, Anonymous says. It warned ISIS after the latest attacks to “get ready,” adding that it doesn’t “forgive and we don’t forget.” While Anonymous did not reveal any details about planned attacks, the threat could be serious. Given its history.
“We should expect Anonymous to target ISIS members online and make ISIS member information publicly available,” FitzGerald says. “Anonymous will go after online personas and ISIS websites.”
That personal information could be a gold mine.
It may well be that this is what really hurts those bastards long term.
