Anonymous Issues Guides So Anyone Can Join Online Battle Against IS

Posted on .

Want to take down an IS website all on your own? Well, Anonymous wants you to be able to, too.

“The more the merrier,” Anonymous said today in a message which included links to how-to guides. The group recently made headlines taking down more than 6,000 Twitter accounts associated with Paris attacks and IS sympathizers.

Anonymous posted the guides on an IRC channel used by Anonymous to share information on their #OpParis online battle against IS.

Anonymous has a history of recruiting people for its operations, having released guides for their battle against IS before. These recent guides include step-by-step instructions for exacting cyberattacks against IS websites via distributed denial of service (DDoS) and man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. Anonymous claims its recent operation in the fight against IS, OpParis, will be its “biggest operation ever.”

“There should be plenty of work to keep you occupied so get going,” the Anonymous member who posted the guides stated. “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.” Anonymous issued call-to-keyboards, so to speak:

“Instead of sitting idle in the channel or lurking around and doing nothing, you can benefit greatly from the different tools and guides that have been provided to you,” the group wrote. “Your contribution means a lot and we encourage you to partake in all of the Op’s activities if you can, the more the merrier.”

The NoobGuide “explains the basic principles of DDoSing, WiFi deauth, password cracking, and various other hacking terms.”

The ReporterGuide “covers launching a reporter bot against a list of Twitter account IDs for discovering, reporting, and taking down ISIS-related accounts,”

The SearcherGuide demonstrates “how people can help Anonymous find more ISIS websites/pages/information.”

The Islamic State (IS) issued guides as well mostly dealing with internet safety. “The tips are some of the lamest and n00bish recommendations you’ll read and show the group’s lack of cyber skills,” Softpedia wrote of the articles.

IS allegedly called Anonymous “idiots” according to Newsweek.  As Hacked covered earlier, The Ghost Security Group has also taken an interest in battling IS online.
