Hackers Are Flooding ISIS Propaganda Channels With PORN

A group of Iraqi ‘hackers’ launched last weekend an operation against the Islamic State (ISIS) by introducing pornographic images into the propaganda of that terrorist movement, reports Newsweek.

The mission of the collective Daeshgram – a word game between Instagram and the acronym in Arabic of the name of the terrorist group – is to infiltrate false information in the messages and pages of the group to raise doubts among the supporters of the IS on the reliability of the information disclosed by the propaganda channels of terrorists.

One of its first actions was to insert a pornographic episode in an ISIS announcement about the opening of a new media centre in Syria. The images that showed a group of IS supporters listening to the ad were altered in such a way that they looked like they were watching a video of a naked woman.

They also launched an attack of denial of service against the media website of the EI, Amaq, suspending the operation of the portal.

Then they created an identical version of the page with messages that mocked the radical Sunni ideology professed by the members of the terrorist group. For this, the components of Daeshgram studied the digital messages of the IS for months to be able to imitate the language and style of their publications.

Paranoia and distrust

Its activity has caused controversy and confusion within the jihadist groups in Telegram since its members have difficulties to distinguish the authentic from the false information.

“Daesh has reacted by telling its supporters not to give credibility to any of the Amaq links, they even fought over that and eliminated each other from various groups,” said a member of Daeshgram.

The hackers believe that their activity helps to weaken the terrorist movement, creating a certain level of paranoia and distrust among their followers.

“If one enters Telegram, you will see that Daesh is confused and does not trust the information given in Amaq, I think we have had some success”, commented one of the hackers of Daeshgram, who is integrated, as he said, for only six people.
