ISIS ‘cyber caliphate’ hacks 54,000 Twitter accounts and posts phone numbers of heads of the CIA and FBI

Jihadis have hacked tens of thousands of Twitter accounts in retaliation for the drone attack that killed a British Islamic State extremist.

A group called Cyber Caliphate, set up by Junaid Hussain from Birmingham, urged its followers to take control of the accounts to spread IS propaganda. Most of the victims appear to be based in Saudi Arabia, though some are feared to be British.

In what experts described as a worrying escalation of the global cyber war, details of more than 54,000 Twitter accounts, including passwords, were posted online last Sunday.

    I wouldn’t be shocked if the alleged Hacking was actually allowed by Obama to cause a mess for all the pre-2008 staff that will not only be a nice crisis pre-election for the Dems to solve, but , hand Hillary a head ache for her part in the Benghazi hearing since her emails now prove that they both LIED about the youtube video causing the attacks.

    I hope I am wrong but Liberals are loyal to their pay checks and them self which shows when they throw each other under the bus if they are about to go to jail or lose an Election.

    Do we pay experts for that kind of analysis? “Trust me, I’m 12, almost 13, and all of my classmates are changing their Twitter passwords.”
