Vocativ, a media company that uses data-mining to dig up content from the deep-web, posted that it discovered a threat against the United States.
A group of hackers affiliated with ISIS are threatening to carry out a cyber attack—dubbed “Message to America”—against a number of targets 2 p.m. EST today. The targets were not identified on ISIS forums and social channels but the hackers are promising something “surprising” that “will frighten America”.
In an early morning tweet on Monday, ISIS-sympathizers promised an attack that will frighten America.
It is unclear whether this group is the same one that hacked into the United States Central Command in January.
The best translation of the tweet CDN has been able to procure:
Obar_klavh # # # Rabotth_alonsar soon Hecr_rabotth_alonsar offers you : Letter to America from the ground to the digital world
The Vocativ post does not offer direct proof of the threatened attack, just the tweet shown above.
