Hackers flood ISIS with porn

A GROUP of Iraqi computer hackers has launched a cyber operation against the Islamic State terror group by slipping pornographic images into its official communication channels, according to a report published this week.

Members of the hacker group, which calls itself Daeshgram (a play on an Arabic acronym many use to describe IS), told Newsweek that the goal is to show distrust among IS supporters about messages from the group's leadership.

In one instance, the hackers photoshopped an image of a naked woman into an announcement about the opening of a media centre in IS-controlled Syria.

The altered image made it appear that the Islamic State extremists were viewing pornography.

Daeshgram's most prominent target is Amaq, which one hacker described as "a so-called news agency" for IS.

The group forced the site offline with a denial-of-service attack before creating an exact replica of the page with messages mocking the terror group's ideology.

"Daesh responded by telling supporters not to trust any of the Amaq links," a hacker told the magazine. "They even had fights among themselves about the topic and deleted each other from various groups.

"Go on [encrypted messaging app] Telegram and you will see that Daesh are confused about Amaq and don't trust it," the Daeshgram hacker added. "So we think we have been successful to an extent, and we are only six people."
