Ever since the January attack on French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, the hacker group Anonymous has embarked on efforts to challenge the tech savvy radical Islamic group, ISIS, which does much of its recruiting via the Internet. It is argued that freedom of speech is sacrosanct for the hacker community, hence, Anonymous' motivation to get involved in the struggle against ISIS after the Paris attack. Earlier this week Anonymous released a statement which said that they had exposed or destroyed nearly 800 Twitter accounts, 12 Facebook pages and 50 email addresses that were all suspected to be involved with the terrorist organization.
