ISIS Has Anonymous In Its Crosshairs

Mar 10, 2015 at 8:35 AM ET

ISIS supporters are circulating a hit list of 182 “most prominent enemy” Twitter handles that have been monitoring and reporting on accounts associated with the Jihadist network. Accounts related to the hacking group Anonymous dominate the list.

The blacklist’s author, “Abu Hamze,” encouraged ISIS supporters to block and report the watchdog accounts in response.

This appears to be an escalation in what has been to this point a primarily one-sided online war. In recent weeks, Anonymous has—somewhat uncharacteristically for an anti-corporate hacking and social-activist network—joined Twitter management in its efforts to suspend and delete social-media accounts connected to the Jihadist movement.

Translation: A step to support the Islamic State. Save your by step on these dirty accounts collected in one link.
