'No Safe Place for You Online': Anonymous Taking Down ISIS Social Media Accounts

Hacking collective Anonymous announced its progress in taking down sites associated with ISIS, listing dozens of Twitter accounts used for recruiting and terrorist PR that are now in the hands of the hackers.


Anonymous released a video Sunday stating that the group of “hackers, crackers, hacktivists, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy next door” working to bring down the ISIS online operation represented all religions, young and old, students and workers, from a range of countries.

Vowed the group:

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.

Anonymous has also put many Facebook accounts on a watch list, suspecting the users of communicating with ISIS.

They warned it’s “just the beginning,” and more accounts were being hijacked even as they were posting the announcement.

A month ago, Anonymous declared war on ISIS following the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris. That was followed a few days later by an ISIS hacker taking over CENTCOM’s social media accounts. After Anonymous tracked down the hacker, the ISIS hacker briefly took control of one of their accounts. This enabled Anonymous to exactly pinpoint him.
