ISIS Hackers Pose a Growing Threat

Extra Readings:

Hackers sympathetic to ISIS pose a growing risk to the global community. They are using public lists found on the internet and publicizing them as kill lists. This very situation happened with Minnesota law enforcement, where their names, addresses, and phone numbers were published. They are not a sophisticated group of attackers, but they promote violence. The fear is that they gain more hacking experience and resources. The small ISIS hacking groups ,that teamed up together, formed the Cyber Caliphate threat actor now seen in the CSCC’s Weekly Executive Summaries. Thankfully the US Armed forces are doing their part to protect us against these terrorists.
