Di5s3nSi0N in 2 posts on Twitter confirms that the cyber war against Isis is still active and ongoing
Di5s3nSi0N is still carrying on cyber war against Isis. The muslim hackers posted a new Tweet on their profile, that reads: “Before they ran away, the fighters of Daesh left many bombs even in the homes of the people. Alhamdulillah they are being cleared just as we clear your waste on the internet”. The message ends with the traditional hashtags of the online fight against the Islamic State: #silencetheswords#OpISIS #ISIS #AMAQ. It confirms that the collective is still operating to annihilate web propaganda spread by IS. Just a couple of weeks ago, the group announced a new campaign of cyber attacks. “We remember how you have stolen muslims their welfare and declared it your ghanimah (booty NDR) – they wrote on Twitter -. We advise you to ask Allah to forgive you and to say ‘wadaeean’ to your web sites. We are burying them for you.”
The Muslim and Iraqi DaeshGram hackers have badly affected the capacity of recruitment and radicalization of Islamic State through web and social media
Di5s3nSi0N, together with the Iraqi hackers of DaeshGram, in the last months inflicted very hard blows on Isis in cyberspace. The first by means of traditional cyber attacks aiming at putting all the propaganda channels used by the Islamic State on the web offline. Furthermore to humiliate the jihadists even more they pre announced the cyberwarfare actions. The second went different. They created and put online an alternative version of Amaq, creating great confusion among the online sympathizing Daesh militants. Besides, this operation caused internal wars between the groups of terrorists who were disseminating cyber contents in support of Isis. As a matter of fact, on various occasions they have accused each others of treason or of being an enemy agent through socials. This has created very serious damage to the capacity of recruitment and radicalization of the net, which will not easily be recovered till the hackers collectives operate.
