Alex Poucher, a spokeman for Anonymous, had the following comments:
Our capability to take down ISIS is a direct result of our collective’s sophisticated hackers, data miners, and spies that we have all around the world. We have people very, very close to ISIS on the ground, which makes gathering intel about ISIS and related activities very easy for us.
They picked a fight with Anonymous when they attacked Paris, and now they should expect us,” he said, adding that the collective “will not sit by and watch these terror attacks unfold around the world.
Poucher went on to say that ISIS “does not have hackers like we have hackers.” in regards to the fact ISIS does have some technology people of their own. He is probably right. Anonymous is going to crush them digitally.
