Anonymous shut Down ISIS Main Operations Forum

The main forum used by ISIS militants was taken down by Anonymous, reports Vocativ, citing Rachel Bryson, Quilliam Foundation researcher specialized in Islamic State messaging.

The name of the forum is yet unknown, and we aren't sure if it's the same forum on which we reported a few days ago, when ISIS was urging their members to move operations to a new Dark Web portal.

Anonymous said the forum was used mainly for communications, but official propaganda was also hosted.

"It?s a shock to their system," says Rachel Bryson. "But it won?t impact the spread of jihadist propaganda in the long run."

ISIS will probably rebuild it, just as they will register new Twitter accounts after Anonymous took down over 20,000 of them during the past week. This won't make ISIS militants go off the Web, but will seriously hinder their operations for the moment.

And since we brought up operations, over the weekend we reported that a new Anonymous sub-division, that had just popped up overnight, announced impending ISIS attacks in eight locations around the world.

FBI and other local authorities said the information was not credible, but they took special security measures, nevertheless.

The official Anonymous Twitter account disassociated itself from them right from the beginning, and now, the official Twitter account for the #OpParis operation is doing the same, claiming they are not affiliated with the group and are only some teen pranksters.
