Short Bytes: Encouraging the people to join the cyber-war against ISIS, hacktivist group Anonymous has published three hacking guides. These guides have instructions regarding recognizing ISIS-affiliated websites, using a Twitter bot to uncover social media accounts of ISIS, and learning how to hack using a “NoobGuide”
In another development, Anonymous has released a series of guides urging the people to take part in their biggest ever operation called #OpParis. The guides include how-to instructions that tell the ways to hack the ISIS-affiliated websites and social media accounts.
The rivalry of ISIS and Anonymous dates back to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in January. Anonymous has continued its attacks on ISIS and already exposed more than a thousand Twitter accounts. To train and bring the newer generation of hacktivists, Anonymous has released three how-to guides.
These guides were posted on an IRC channel and Anonymous encouraged everyone to join this war against ISIS regardless of their computer skills.
The three hacking guides include:
Find your dream job
A “NoobGuide” for the people willing to learn how to hack.
A “Reporter guide” explaining how to deploy and set up a Twitter bot for unmasking Islamic State accounts.
A “Searcher guide” for finding ISIS-affiliated websites.
An anonymous member, posting the guides to IRC, states: “There should be plenty of work to keep you occupied so get going. If you wish to submit anything of value, place your findings on ghostbin.com and share to the link to one of the channel operators and we can talk about what to do next.”
These guides have detailed instructions on how to carry out a cyberattack against ISIS websites using DDoS attacks and MITM (Man in the Middle) attacks.
Here are the instructions mentioned by Anonymous for finding ISIS-related website (thanks to IBTimes):
- Get Python at https://www.python.org/downloads/ unless you already have it (Mac does)
- Open Terminal (or Command Prompt for Windows) and type (without quotes) “python”
- Now, this step requires a little explanation. Let’s set this out neatly, shall we…
- Copy the contents of the following link to your clipboard https://ghostbin.com/paste/oo4tb
- The contents of that link are some search terms that relate to ISIS and their content, allowing you to narrow down the results to specific ones
- Paste the strings into the Terminal and press Enter
- Choose a couple of strings (3 recommended) from the list of strings. For this example we will use strings 3+38+46
- Once chosen, continue in terminal (without quotes) “print(str3+str38+str42)” and copy the results
- Paste the results in https://www.google.iq and analyze the new results To translate pages, it is recommended to use Google Chrome, which has integrated translation
- Submit any valid ones to one of the channel operators and we will deal with the info accordingly
