Islamic State Cyber Jihad – Fake?

The twitter account of the United States Central Command was allegedly breached under a Cyber Jihad from elements within the Islamic State.(archive) Fake?IS-UScentcom

The ‘hijacked’ account posted a number of images and lists such as retired Generals and US Military personnel. (Which could be quiet easily compiled through public google searches.)

The intruders ‘reign of intrusion’ lasted approximately 40 minutes. Which I thought was quick considering the chain of command and variant protocols such a task would require, but maybe not..

The idea that this is fake has as much validity that it isn’t…in fact the US Central Command have a lot more to gain by a fake Cyber Intrusion. If that seems a bit crazy, then maybe it is..but stranger things have been known to occur.

Update – Obama speech (here & here) 14 Jan 2015

After a weekend which saw the largest public gathering – slash- march in French history, the target is now freshly painted with laser reflector tags, the internet.

INCOMING!

Update

Read the infowars dot com article linking the Internet Protocol number back to Maryland, and the presumption that the intrusion was done as a signal or marker prior to President Obama Cyber Security Speech. (here)

A similar dialogue has been heard before back at the G20 Summit in Brisbane, Australia from UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who again is calling for even further restraint and control being applied to the internet. (video here)
