New ‘ISIS’ Hit List Hack of US Military Actually Done by Russians?

A new message purportedly released by Islamic State hackers contains personal information of United States military personnel. But could it actually have been done by Russia? The threat was tweeted by the now defunct Twitter account @cyybercaliphate. However, the veritability as to whether the Cyber Caliphate has any real connection to ISIS is up for debate.

CNBC reports:

According to experts at the cybersecurity firm iSight Partners, Cyber Caliphate is likely what spies call a “false flag” operation—set up to appear as if it is representing one side in a conflict, but actually working on behalf of someone else. What’s more, iSight says it believes the “Cyber Caliphate” is actually operated by a group of Russians—not ISIS sympathizers.

The latest list released by the Cyber Caliphate referred to this new list as a “kill list.” It allegedly provides not only the names, addresses, phone numbers, emails, and other personal information on selected military personnel, but also their last known location. However, it comes at a time when Russia has been increasing its presence in Syria and aiding Syrian President Bashar Assad in combating not only ISIS, but also anti-Assad rebels. The United States currently supports anti-Assad rebels. Earlier today, CNN reported that “President Barack Obama authorized the resupply of Syrian Kurds and the Arab-Syrian opposition.”

Last month the Cyber Caliphate released a threat against the United States on the anniversary of 9/11. Nothing came of it.

Reality check

That’s stupid you don’t have to hack anything to get vital information on our soldiers. The military has gotten so lazy that at company level the orderly room clerks and s shops at Battalion level no longer do their jobs, the commands now required soldiers to do their work for them. Since soldiers don’t have the access to military computers that’s required for them to do the work they’re forced to go to the public libraries on the instillation and pay out of their own pockets
Then all their personal information is left all over the public computers.
Anyone can get on these computers and find soldiers personal info all over them.
It’s a common problem in the military that everyone knows about but is ignored because clerks are lazy and don’t do the work they’re supposed to,
The DOD employees who are hired to take up the slack are even worst. Soldiers are constantly forced to pay out of pocket to cover expenses because once they turn in paper work for things like changing duty stations the forms are never filed the 2 to 4 yrs later the military takes it the money it spent on travel for soldiers out of their pay or if they have left the military it’s collected from their taxs.
This get very expensive when soldiers are moving whole families.
