Anonymous has released a new video in which it declares that it will continue its efforts against ISIS in a bid to help put an end to terrorism.
Anonymous has released a new video to inform the world that it is intent on doing its part in the war against ISIS.
Anonymous released the video in the wake of the attacks in Belgium stating "Our freedom is once again under attack." The masked person in the video says that the group will strike back against them.
Following November's attacks in Paris, Anonymous went on the offensive. According to the video, the group silenced thousands of Twitter accounts associated with ISIS, and has "hacked their electronic portfolio and stolen money from the terrorists."
"We have laid siege to your propaganda websites, tested them with our cyber attacks, however we will not rest as long as terrorists continue their actions around the world," the person adds. Anonymous plans to continue to attack ISIS websites and Twitter accounts, and says it will continue to steal Bitcoins, a form of digital currency.
The video continues, "We defend the rights of freedom and tolerance. To the supporters of Daesh, we will track you down, we will find you, we are everywhere and we are more than you can imagine. Be afraid."
"When they killed innocent civilians in Belgium, they hit everybody in Europe. We have to fight back."
The video adds that everyone can contribute to the group's efforts. But it doesn't necessarily have to involve hacking. "But you don't have to hack them, if you stand up against discrimination in your country, you will harm them much more than by hacking their websites. The Islamic State cannot recruit Muslims in Europe if they are accepted and included in the society. So we want all of you to stand together against discrimination," the message concludes.
