Islamic State has claimed the hacker group Anonymous to be “owners of the virtual world”. They have also hit back at hacking group Anonymous as the brutal terror organisation.
In a message on an encrypted chat app, the depraved terror group encouraged supporters to update their profile pictures with the image of a black shoe print on the French flag.
The sickening message was followed by a chilling threat, written only in Arabic, promising to strike back at the masked computer association.
It comes after the infamous cyber gang claimed responsibility for deleting more than 5,500 Twitter account linked to the abhorrent extremists.
Rachel Bryson, from the anti-extremist think tank Quilliam, warned that a retaliation from ISIS should be expected.The researcher said the message “states that there will be something coming and that we should stay tuned and watch out”.
She added: “I don’t know if it is literally declaring virtual war on Anonymous, but it is promising a response… They are definitely trying to taunt Anonymous with this.
