NBC News has republished a major Reuters story this morning (and put it on Facebook’s news feed) about Anonymous and its own attempt to snarl ISIS with “ethical hacking”, rather like the character “Q” in recent James Bond movies. The story is here. The story also links to another account of new cybersecurity in Britain.
The group says it has helped close down ISIS-related Twitter accounts (could it get some of this wrong and close down a legitimate user?) and has posed as possible recruits to gain access to Dark Web sites and encrypted messaging apps, which are becoming controversial.
