Anonymous released a list of ISIS supporter websites and companies in UK and US that are hosting them

Written by Michael Davies

The online hacktivist group called Anonymous has released a list of websites related to ISIS and the companies that are hosting these websites.

This action is a part of the campaign called #OpISIS which was launched earlier this year. Weeks ago the same group released a list of 9,200 ISIS supporters’ Twitter accounts. Later, the wave was continued by @xrsone who released a new list containing 25,000 Twitter accounts, without even using hack methods.

GhostSec statement that was released in IBTimes UK:

“All websites listed below are frequently used by the Islamic State through Twitter and other social media platforms for transmission of propaganda, religion, recruitment, communications and intelligence gathering purposes. (Web host companies) are unaware of their customers content or they turn a blind eye for easy profit and choose to accept blood-money. CloudFlare is by far the largest offender on this list and they have been made aware of the specified content they are protecting… Together we can stop this from spreading and hold these companies accountable for their less than ethical business practices.”

It should be mentioned that Cloudflare has also accepted Thepiratebay but still, they’re doing this as the service’s owners believe in freedom on Internet, no matter what kind of it we’re talking about!

Many other giant hosting companies including OVH (the most popular hosting company in Europe) and LeaseWeb are also in this list as they are providing services for these ISIS supporter websites.

Hundreds of websites allegedly associated with ISIS have already been attacked by Anonymous and its affiliates. Until today, Anonymous claims that they have attacked 233 websites and “destroyed” 85 of them as part of #OpIsis. The type of their attacks is not cleared yet.
