ISIS supporters have hacked multiple Pentagon social media accounts

A group describing itself as the “CyberCaliphate” apparently gained control of the official Twitter and YouTube pages of US Central Command (CENTCOM) on Monday and began posting messages supportive of the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS).

The hack occurred at the same time as President Barack Obama was giving a speech on cybersecurity at the offices of the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, D.C.

On Twitter, the group posted a message that declared “Pentagon networks hacked” where they indicated they broke into military “networks and personal devices.” In the message the “CyberCaliphate” identified themselves as being “under the auspices of ISIS.” They also included links to what they described as leaked military files. They then began posting screenshots they described as “China scenarios.”
