Two days after declaring war on ISIS members, Anonymous has already managed to take down over 5,500 Twitter accounts linked to various ISIS members and associates. The official Twitter account is called #OpParis. Besides scanning for ISIS Twitter accounts themselves, the hacking group has also opened access to the site to those interested. Anyone who comes across ISIS social media accounts can easily search the database and report any new terrorists and supporters.
The website is called #opIceISIS and will index ISIS members based on their real name, location, picture, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube accounts.
Before the Paris attacks, Anonymous waged war on ISIS members after the Charlie Hebdo attacks, earlier this year, during operation #OpISIS. That time, the group managed to take tens of thousands of accounts down. With over 3,800 just on the first day and almost 2,000 the second, the group seems even more determined this time around to finally put an end to the terrorist group.
Just before the Paris attacks, the Ghost Security Group, another secret hacking posse, revealed that they traced Bitcoin wallets holding more than $3 million back to known ISIS members.
Go! Revenge of the nerds! Beat them at their own game, Anonymous!
