Amaq, the official news agency of ISIS or Daesh terrorist group informed its users about a huge compromise in the security of its website. They said Anonymous Hackers Hacked ISIS site which is now infecting thousands of users.
When visiting the site, the following message keeps appearing:-
“The site ahead contains malware, and that attacker might attempt to install dangerous programs on your computer that steal or delete your information.” “
The site’s administrators had identified the hack on Thursday, told the media via a telegram channel and warned strictly to the users, not to download the flash player appearing on the site. They warned as the request to download flash player will result in the compromise of user devices.
Vocativ reported that several ISIS forums have also reported about the incident, and to a few forum users, the virus was impersonating as a Flashplayer.apk. APK (Android package kit), an Android operating system file format. They further claimed that the malware is designed to spy on the ISIS terrorist group’s members and that the malware could track user’s locations, read conversations and collect all the multimedia files on the user’s device.
Since the virus disguised as a Flash Player APK file, thousands of users are in huge trouble. One of the user also suggested that to get rid of the malware, one needs to reset the device to factory settings.
So far, no one has claimed the responsibility of the hack, but it is believed that it could be an anti-ISIS group running operation ISIS, #OPISIS is behind this hack. The people behind #OPISIS- an anonymous- affiliated anti-ISIS online campaign have been known to disrupt the ISIS’ online presence over the past few years.
The fact that Anonymous hackers left a message stating “We are coming for you,” could confirm that they are behind the hack.
