HACKERS ARE DUMPING PORN ON ISIS WEBSITES

Date: 2017-12-27



The Daeshgram group are young Iraqi activists that have caused confusion and disarray in Isis’ ranks with photoshopped pictures of naked women and fake news sites.

The group's name comes from the Islamic State and melding it with Instagram, they are all resisting against Isis. Their form of protest, well... it is softcore porn plastered across Isis propaganda websites in mass hacking sprees. Some of their previous hacks and infiltrations have led to confusion and disarray within Isis and led many radicals to question the authenticity of Isis sites, as they spread false information and pictures of women in their underwear.

One of the group's first attacks saw them alter a video to show what looks like extremists gathering to watch naked women on screen. In another, the group photoshopped clips from an adult film into an Isis media announcement. The extremist media site Amaq has suffered the most severely, with many radicals believing, since the hacks, that it’s a fake.

The group's motivation for starting was that they "have created fake Isis news, websites, pictures and videos in order to create confusion among its supporters and discredit Isis propaganda and their Telegram groups," says the Daeshgram group. "Some of us have been affected by what Isis has done to ourselves and also to relatives and friends, we’re bored of seeing Isis propaganda all the time, we wanted to see what impact a small group of people with a simple plan could have on Isis – it seems you don’t have to hack Isis in order to damage them online. And it is actually very funny to see how they react to things and can be tricked" they added.

The reason they use porn and pictures of women in bikinis and bras to get the attention of Isis, to make them realise it is easy to create fake news. The products the group create is fake news, fake photos and fake AI-Bayan audio – AI-Bayan is their radio.

They also create fake infographics, fake videos and fake websites. Some of the fake content they create has been funny, but other products they create look a lot more like Isis. For example, Daeshgram published infographics in the style of Afaq; which is an Isis agency providing supporters technical and cyber advice. On the infographics, they published it said that "certain VPNs could be tracked and reveal people’s real IP addresses".

The biggest risk the group might have at this point is that Isis will try and find them, but they seem to not be bothered about this. No-one knows about the group except them, "We hide it from everyone, otherwise the risk becomes too big if many people know about it. We want our activities to be known but not ourselves."

Daeshgram's main goal is to "continue to frustrate Isis so that they can make all the sites and channels that they want but their supporters will never know what is real and what is fake."
