Anonymous reveals list of ISIS-linked Twitter accounts
Anonymous cooperated with two other hacktivist groups before revealing the list
Three leading hacktivist groups have released the largest list of social media accounts related to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), IBT reported Monday.
Anonymous ,GhostSec and Ctrlsec revealed the list that gathers 9,200 accounts online.
“This is historic amongst the digital world as it’s the first time these groups have come together for something this large,” a member of Anonymous involved in the operation said.
“Usually they are very closed off and not willing to work outside of their circles but this has become so large of a problem they’re willing to form an alliance for what is seen as a greater good,” the source said.
“The outcome of hundreds of hackers across all three major groups is the largest compiled and verified list ever to be released to the public,” it said.
The list is part of #OpISIS, a campaign launched earlier this year to disrupt ISIS’ activities on the Internet.
#OpISIS has already disrupted nearly 1,000 website.
