|I Think They Missed a Real Opportunity By Not Photoshopping That Sword|
In the Wake of Orlando, Anonymous Hacks Hundreds of ISIS’ Twitter AccountsTechly - It’s not going to bring down the caliphate – but it is funny as hell. In a small, moral victory for the good guys, the hacktivist collective known as Anonymous, has infiltrated hundreds of pro-ISIS twitter accounts and given them a fabulous gay makeover.
A hacker by the name of WauchulaGhost has been responsible for the majority of the attacks. For instance, he broke into ISIS account, @gi_h_a_d35, changed his profile picture to a gay flag and tweeted out this message: “Hello World. It’s time I share with you a little secret…
WauchulaGhost has also been tweeting out IP addresses, phone numbers and other contact information for fellow hackers to use. Explaining his motivation, he/she said:
"Daesh [ISIS] have been spreading and praising the attack, so I thought I would defend those that were lost. The taking of innocent lives will not be tolerated.Our actions are directed at Jihadist extremists. Many of our own [group of hackers] are Muslim and we respect all religions that do not take innocent lives."Anonymous and ISIS have had a very bizarre and underwhelming “war” since the Charlie Hedbo attacks, kind of like when Soulja Boy and Lil Bow Wow had a “beef”
