Anonymous Engages ISIS Terrorists In Cyber Wars: The Battleground Is Twitter And The Weapon Is Porn

Anonymous hackers like Wauchula Ghost are currently engaged in a cyber battle with ISIS and are fighting to liberate the territory of Twitter from an Islamic State terrorist invasion. While Twitter is not exactly a sovereign nation, it does host approximately one billion accounts from all over the world. Most of those profiles represent real human beings, but others represent organizations trying to get attention for their cause or product. The Islamic State tweets to gain attention for their cause by using thousands of profiles.

ISIS (aka the Islamic State) is perpetually creating multiple accounts to spread their deadly message to young people in the west. FBI Director James Comey believes the Orlando shooter, Omar Mateen, was radicalized through the internet, at least in part.

Anonymous hacker Wauchula Ghost told the Washington Post in a telephone interview that he is hacking those ISIS accounts by the hundreds and filling them with porn in order to demoralize and humiliate the self-righteous recruiters.

“Daesh doesn’t like porn. They don’t like women in general. We just started using it to poke fun at them and diminish their presence online.”

Daesh is the transliteration of the actual name of ISIS in Arabic.

ISIS recruits young people to join their ranks, motivating them to either travel to the middle east to wage war or commit acts of terrorism in the nation they are from. Islamic State recruiters work hard to make converts using social media. The porn Anonymous is spewing into their system is getting in their way and at least slowing them down.

Anonymous hackers believe they are fighting to protect people from injustice even though they are engaging in what some would call illegal or at least questionable activities. Anonymous has a plan to make the enemy look ridiculous. They hope to eventually drive ISIS from the internet. Wauchula Ghost explains they have a lot of work to do if they are going to defeat the Islamic extremists online presence.

Twitter management also combats ISIS or Islamic State recruiters, sympathizers, and terrorists. While the government has very little means to take control of Twitter, Twitter takes down Islamic State recruiter accounts whenever it finds them. Twitter has suspended over 125,000 Islamic State-related accounts so far and continues to search them out. While removing accounts is very effective, loading their profiles with porn makes those profiles easier to identify.

Anonymous hackers are only loosely affiliated with one another, and there is no central leadership. They truly are Anonymous, even to each other, and they do not use real legal names and are unaware of each other’s true identities in most cases. Still, they can be very effective, carrying out multiple objectives simultaneously through their vast number of members.

ISIS recruiters on Twitter can be ruthless, and they can be arrested for their activities if they are within the United States. On May 18, Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, a resident of Pennsylvania, was arrested after allegedly listing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of 100 American servicemen and women. He tweeted instructions to kill them, according to Law News.

“Kill them [servicemembers] in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their street thinking that they are safe.”

The ISIS recruiter from Pensylvania allegedly managed at least 57 Twitter accounts used in his recruiting operation. He stands accused of solicitation of a crime and transmitting a threat. Additionally, he is believed to have arranged travel for new recruits as part of his job.

Anonymous hackers have seen how manipulative ISIS recruiters lure young Americans to their deaths as suicide bombers and fighters. That is why they fight against the Islamic State in any way they can, working to discredit them and undermine their work. Wauchula Ghost revealed just one of the many methods used by hackers to undermine the activities of the Islamic State.
