International terrorism watchdog group Terror Monitor reports that the Islamic State “cyber army” has announced plans to hack Google.
Above is the propaganda image purportedly released by ISIS announcing the plan. In it, “Islamic” is spelled incorrectly.
The so-called “cyber army” of ISIS has made varying degrees of threats in the past. In 2015 they promised to attack internet targets on the anniversary of September 11. It never happened.
In August, NBC reported that the Islamic State Hacking Division “posted what it said was the personal information of hundreds of members of the military and government personnel, and urged terrorists to carry out attacks.”
Personal information released included “names, emails, passwords, and phone numbers of personnel that included individuals from the Air Force, the Marines, NASA and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.”
However, the U.S. government did not verify the veracity of these alleged ISIS claims.
