Well known hacktivist group Anonymous may attract split opinions about their actions, but I think we can agree that their latest campaign is a good one. A couple of weeks ago the group announced that they would use their abilities to strike against the terrorist group ISIS and their online presence. Today Anonymous announced the beginning of such and posted a new video online. They also listed a lot of Twitter and Facebook accounts they had taken down, accounts used to spread their propaganda and recruit followers; this information is available at the source below.
The video starts out with a clarification, that they are made up from all sorts of people and that the ISIS doesn’t represent Muslims as they want to make us all believe.
“We are Muslims, Christians, Jews alike.” … “hackers, crackers, Hacktivist, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy next door … students, administrators, workers, clerks, unemployed, rich, poor.” … “young, or old, gay or straight… from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity. United as one, divided by zero.” … “the terrorists that are calling themselves [the] Islamic State (ISIS) are not Muslims,” the video states.
“This is just the beginning,” the video continues. “We will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails, and expose you… From now on, no safe place for you online… You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure… We own the internet… We are Anonymous; we are Legion; we do not forgive, we do not forget, Expect us.”
