Did you participate in several hacking campaigns? could you tell me more about you?
I actually just had some experience with web design, I decided to start doing something with ISIS when me and a group of other people from Anonymous (we’re not officially anons just hunters) and started learning more technical details by talking to people that knew a lot more than me.
Could you tell me which his your technical background and when you started hacking? Which are your motivations?
My motivation is all the damage ISIS does to the general public, not just the killings but the fear they spread. Our main focus is to try to limit the propaganda spread to avoid creating worries in the general public so people can live without fear of beeing attacked everywhere.
When I started hacking my background was just basic programming, after that I realized that more was needed so, I studied networking and security.
My motives, well that’s a bit complicated since my basic objective is to fight against government corruption, denial of privacy and police brutality. some may take it as political but it’s Activism. in my case Hacktivism.
What was your greatest hacking challenge?
Not a very technical aspect more on a social engineering level when I managed to make Junaid Hussain (Tr1ck) so mad that he threw out the NYC threat to scare me.
Which was your latest hack? Can you describe me it?
Actually, I don’t remember, it’s been going on a lot with the accounts lately so right now that is our focus. We flag ISIS accounts so other people can report them, we make it possible for everyone who wants to fight ISIS and make a change without actually picking up arms and go to the front line.

Sniffer – Is a packet analyzer that lets you monitor and intercept packets on networks.
Which are the most interesting hacking communities on the web today, why?
We’re only working on ISIS so we’re not much out there in communities else than twitter.
Did you participate in hacking attacks against the IS propaganda online? When? How?
That’s our main focus, we attack their propaganda every day but we do what we need to get it completely offline.
Where do you find IS people to hack? How do you choose your targets?
Well if we got a shot on their hackers or their main propagandists we show no mercy. We have been tracking ISIS accounts online for 2 years now and we got a well-trained team that makes sure as few as possible mistakes go thru our bots.
We often hear about cyber weapons and cyber attacks against critical infrastructure. Do you believe it is real the risk of a major and lethal cyber attack against a critical infrastructure?
I believe there is a risk, but if it happens it is just proving that the operators in those facilities don’t know their job good enough to be working with critical infrastructure. Imagine if an ISIS hacker got their hands on the US nuclear codes, that would be pretty critical.
