What's This?

The Anonymous vs ISIS war is on as the former not only hacked into 5,500 online accounts of the militant group, but also shared to the word a tutorial on how to dismantle the online operations of ISIS for everyone to participate in their case.


As reported by RT, the ISIS militants hit Paris hard when consecutive terrorist attacks killed several people in the city of lights, particularly in three areas where random people met in casual. A series of suicide bombers and men who opened fire rampaged across the city which brought it to a state of emergency.

After the terrorist attacks, Anonymous, a hacktivist group, released a video saying that they will sabotage the online operations of the militant group as retaliation for wreaking havoc all over Paris. Consequently, the terrorist group responded by calling the group “idiots.”

To prove a point, Anonymous posted a Tweet last Tuesday saying that they have succeeded in hacking 5,500 Twitter accounts of the ISIS militants. In fact, Alex Poucher, the spokesman for Anonymous , revealed to RT, “Our capability to take down ISIS is a direct result of our collective’s sophisticated hackers, data miners, and spies that we have all around the world. We have people very, very close to ISIS on the ground, which makes gathering intel about ISIS and related activities very easy for us.”

He added, “They picked a fight with Anonymous when they attacked Paris, and now they should expect us. [We] will not sit by and watch these terror attacks unfold around the world.”

At present, BGR reported that not only did the group wish to sabotage ISIS themselves but are seeking the support and help of everyone else. In fact, they published per International Business Times, a tutoring guide on how to identify online accounts that was from the terrorists and how to hack them. Seems like the Anonymous vs ISIS war is leaning against ISIS nowadays.

The instructions were as follows:

Instructions for finding ISIS-related websites

Get Python at unless you already have it (Mac does)

Open Terminal (or Command Prompt for Windows) and type (without quotes) “python”

Now, this step requires a little explanation. Let’s set this out neatly, shall we…

Copy the contents of the following link to your clipboard –

The contents of that link are some search terms that relate to ISIS and their content, allowing you to narrow down the results to specific ones.

Paste the strings into the Terminal and press Enter.

Choose a couple of strings (3 recommended) from the list of strings. For this example we will use strings 3+38+46

Once chosen, continue in terminal (without quotes) “print(str3+str38+str42)” and copy the results

Paste the results in and analyze the new results To translate pages, it is recommended to use Google Chrome, which has integrated translation

Submit any valid ones to one of the channel operators and we will deal with the info accordingly.

The Anonymous vs ISIS online war continues to unfold as the hackers target the social media accounts of the terrorist group. Knowing that social media is an important aspect in the quest for ISIS to wage war against everyone who were against their beliefs, Anonymous are surely contributing to several states’ efforts in bringing the murderous group’s effort worldwide.
