CyberBerkut Release Video Purporting to Show Staged Videos From IS

Right, not sure what to make of this, but this has appeared on a few tech sites in the last few hours, according to online hacktivist CyberBerkut, who are claiming to have released a video which purports to be from Senator John McCain’s laptop and (ALLEGEDLY) shows what looks to be a stage-managed version of IS executions.

According to the information, Senator McCain did visit Ukraine in the last week where CyberBerkut are based, according to them; they somehow accessed his laptop for this information. Again, allegedly.

Below is the statement which CyberBerkut has placed onto their website

We CyberBerkut received at the disposal of the file whose value cannot be overstated! Dear Senator McCain! We recommend you next time in foreign travel, and especially on the territory of Ukraine, not to take confidential documents. In one of the devices of your colleagues, we found a lot of interesting things. Something we decided to put: this video should become the property of the international community!”

I am not going to comment but to only give the information which is available to the story as of writing, expressing an opinion on such unproven allegations would be disrespectful to the families and friends who have lost loved ones to these barbaric acts.

Propaganda, protest or truth, this is the information circulating
