Shadowy hacking group steps up cyber-conflict by revealing names and addresses of suspected ISIS zealots

Anonymous has begun publishing the names and addresses of alleged ISIS recruiters.

The masked hacking group declared war against the Islamic State in the wake of the Paris attacks, vowing to silence extremist propaganda and expose undercover operatives.

Now it has leaked details of at least five men it claims are recruiters for the terror group, as well as taking down 5,500 Twitter accounts.

Mirror Online has seen the names, addresses and phone numbers of men living in countries including Afghanistan, Tunisia and Somalia.

Anonymous activists also claimed to have identified a "high-ranking" recruiter living in Europe, but have not yet published an address.

We have contacted some of the men who have been named, but they have not replied and we have been unable to verify if the allegations against them are true.

 

 

Some Anonymous spokesmen claimed to have closed down a total of 5,500 ISIS supporters' Twitter accounts, whilst others put the figure at 900.

Hitting these accounts is seen as a way of shutting down the ISIS recruitment and propaganda machine.

A group of hackers called GhostSec is also working feverishly to identify the Paris attackers.

"We have been flooded with data," a source told us.
