Anonymous has released a step-by-step guide on how you can hack ISIS

Been looking for a more proactive way to engage with the threat of ISIS than changing the filter on your Facebook profile? Anonymous has the answer.

The often-annoying, occasionally-helpful internet activist group has released three documents giving introductory steps on how to "hack" various ISIS internet structures.

The first tangible step in their Operation Paris (OpParis) cyberwar campaign against the terrorist group, the documents can help even tech "noobs" (people so new to technology lingo they don't know what "noob" means).

The three documents are as follows:

  • NoobGuide - an introductory guide to 'hacking' and taking down ISIS websites and social media accounts
  • Reporter guide - how to set up a Twitter bot account that will reveal ISIS accounts
  • Searcher guide - how to find ISIS websites, to then carry out the hacks outlined in the Noobguide

"Instead of sitting idle in the [chat] channel or lurking around and doing nothing, you can benefit greatly from the different tools and guides that have been provided to you," wrote an Anonymous member in an introduction to the guides. "Your contribution means a lot and we encourage you to partake in all of the Op's activities if you can, the more the merrier."

Will the hacks make any difference to the operations of ISIS? In an 'on the ground' sense, probably not - the capacities of bedroom-bound hackers aren't quite up to the standards of international intelligence agencies looking to carry out similar work. But it could frustrate any ISIS members looking to use the internet services that Anonymous is suggesting to target.

Stay safe, stay alert, and if you do fancy joining in with Anonymous' war on terror, be sure to know that a lot of the work you'll be engaging in isn't legal.
