On July 28, 2016, the pro-Islamic State (ISIS) Hacking group United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) posted an infographic on its Telegram channel highlighting the group’s most prominent hacks. The infographic lists the group’s hacks according to the countries targeted, the number of websites hacked, and the number of soldiers whose information was leaked. Both the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) and the French TV5 Monde television station were hacked in 2015 by the Cyber Caliphate, which later went on to become part of the United Cyber Caliphate.
