ISIS Responds to #Anonymous Threat of Cyberwar

Terror Group Calls Hacker Group 'Idiots'

Yesterday, the hacker group Anonymous declared "war" on ISIS in response to the deadly attacks in Paris.  Shortly thereafter, ISIS responded, calling the hacker "idiots"

The message came through the encrypted chat service "Telegram" believed to be affiliated with ISIS.  According the Business Insider, the message read: "The #Anonymous hackers threatened in a new video release that they will carry out a major hack operation on the Islamic state (are) idiots... what are they going to hack?"

ISIS did admit that so far hackers have managed to hit some ISIS email and Twitter accounts and advised ISIS followers not to open any links unless they are sure of the source and to "not talk to people (you) don't know on Telegram" or through direct messages on Twitter.
