Infamous hacking group Anonymous may have pulled off the ultimate hack.
The hacking group, known for targeting government websites, large companies and social media platforms, has hacked Islamic terrorist group ISIS.
The hackers have reportedly gained access to a number of pro-ISIS Twitter accounts to decorate them with a little gay pride after members of the group rejoiced over the heinous mass shooting at Pulse, a gay night club in Orlando, Florida.
A 29-year-old man armed with an assault rifle early Sunday morning took the lives of 49 people and injured at least 53 others. The shooter, who police identified as Omar Mateen, was shot and killed by police. Mateen was a Florida resident and U.S. citizen who is thought to have ties to radical Islam. And although the attack has not yet been officially linked to ISIS, members of the radical group — who are known for their homophobia — cheered the shooter’s efforts, angering people the world over.
Anonymous took revenge in a very public way by changing the Twitter profile pictures to the gay flag and tweeting pro-gay messages.
The hacker who seemed to do the majority of the work is known on Twitter as @WauchulaGhost. The accounts he/she hacked were given the name ‘Jacked by a Ghost.”
On one ISIS account — @gi_h_a_d35 — the hacker changed the profile picture to a gay flag, and tweeted: “Hello World. It’s time I share with you a little secret…I’m Gay and I’m Proud!! #GayPride #OrlandoWillNotBeForgotten !!! #GhostOfNoNation.”
@WauchulaGhost said Twitter has since deleted many of the hacked accounts.
