Anonymous' Group Declares War on Islamic State


"Expect massive cyber attacks."

In the wake of last week's terrorist attack in Paris that left 129 dead, the hacker network Anonymous published a video describing their plan to unleash a cyber war on the Islamic State.

In an unverified video posted to YouTube, an apparent Anonymous spokesperson wearing a signature Guy Fawkes mask said in French, "These attacks cannot remain unpunished" and that they will "hunt down" those responsible.

"Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down," the video said. "You should know that we will find you, and we will not let you go. We will launch the biggest operation ever against you. Expect massive cyber attacks."

The video went on to say "war is declared" on the Islamic State and to be prepared because "the French people are stronger than you" and will be even stronger after the recent attacks.

Anonymous first gained notoriety when it launched cyber attacks against organizations like PayPal, MasterCard and the Church of Scientology. Additionally, the hacker group has been committed to shutting down the social media accounts of those supporting the Islamic State since the January attack on Charlie Hebdo.

According to Anonymous, the group has successfully reported more than 39,000 Twitter accounts and led to the suspension of more than 25,000.
