The infamous international hacking collective group known as Anonymous has declared war on ISIS after the later claimed responsibility between the terrorist attacks that occurred in Paris, leaving 129 people dead and hundreds more injured.

In the video, a French-speaking member of Anonymous said what is translated into English as “We will launch the biggest operation ever against you… War is declared. Get prepared.” and tells ISIS to expect many cyber attacks in their future.

While Anonymous was not specific in their threat, there has already been much speculation about what they could do to ISIS. One possibility includes the idea that they might hack into ISIS’ private networks and release vital military information such as battle plans, or even the names and personal information of those involved in ISIS’ terrorist activity.

ISIS has been quick to respond to the warning from Anonymous. An ISIS-affiliated Telegram channel has sent out a message to its followers, giving them instructions on how to avoid getting hacked by Anonymous, calling the group “idiots” in the process.

In the statement given by the Telegram channel, ISIS gives basic instructions to their followers, such as to never open links if they are uncertain of the source, change their Internet Protocol addresses constantly, and to not talk to people that they don’t actually know on Telegram or through Twitter’s direct messaging system.

The message was originally posted in both English and Arabic and has since been circulated through various other ISIS-affiliated Telegram channels.

This will not be the first time that Anonymous has targeted a terrorist group. After a terrorist attack took place at Charlie Hebdo in Paris earlier this year, leaving several of the satirical magazine’s cartoonists dead, Anonymous released another video warning them that this was unacceptable and that they would face consequences for their actions.

Anonymous followed through on their threats that first time, taking down several extremist websites and running social media campaigns against the terrorist organization thought to be responsible.
