Pro-ISIS Hacker Attacks British, U.S., Dutch Websites

April 14, 2015

The Twitter account “Hacker of the caliphate state” (@ica_is6), which claims to be an “electronic soldier” of the Islamic State (ISIS), claims to have attacked a large number of British websites, as well as a Dutch and an American website.

In a series of tweets over the past 24 hours, the account listed 23 British websites it claims to have attacked. The first tweet noted that the cyberattacks were a message to the “dog of the cross,” British Prime Minister David Cameron, and that they represented a “bombardment by the #Islamic_State soldiers.”

Previously, on April 11, the account tweeted that it had attacked an American website. The tweet was accompanied by the Hashtag @We_Will_Burn_America.
