Anonymous hacks IS propaganda forum, replaces it with Prozac ad

PanARMENIAN.Net - Anonymous declared cyber warfare on ISIS following the recent Paris terrorist attacks, and it's come good on its threat, Digital Spy reports.

One of its splinter groups GhostSec has just taken the fight to the darknet to dismantle an Islamic State propaganda forum and replace it with an advert for Prozac.

"Too Much ISIS. Enhance your calm. Too many people are into this ISIS-stuff," said the hackers in a statement accompanying the Prozac ad.

"Please gaze upon this lovely ad so we can upgrade our infrastructure to give you ISIS content you all so desperately crave."

The darkweb refers to a series of encrypted anonymity networks where user activity cannot be traced.

ISIS set up the propaganda site in the Tor darknet after Anonymous took down hundreds of terrorist sites on the open web.

Earlier this week, Home Office security minister John Hayes appeared to back Anonymous' cyber war on ISIS when he said that he is "grateful for any of those who are engaged in the battle against this kind of wickedness".

But not everyone shares his view, as critics claim that the hacktivst group's crusade could hinder the investigations of security services.
