Pro-ISIS Hackers Attack Website they thought was Google

A hackers' gang claiming its name as "Cyber Caliphate Army" and apparently supporter of ISIS militants declared a promise on Telegram a messaging app that they'd compromise Google the Internet giant on Monday, reported Vocativ.com.

Thus, during the morning time of Monday, the website exhibited one logo that belonged to the hackers, rolled out a French song of the Islamic State, as well as announced "Hacked By: CCA."

Thereafter when Thursday came, AddGoogleOnline showed one missive meant for the terrorists that said "Eat this ISIS."

Indeed it wasn't known to the hackers that the online site which they attacked thinking it was Google.com was not a smaller service of the company, was not even any authorized subsidiary domain of Google, instead it was a paltry SEO firm based in India which simply happened to utilize "Google" term within their domain. Softpedia.com posted this, March 3, 2016.

Those sites that were hacked into consisted of a laminate flooring and furniture company, one dance instructing site from Japan as well as one salon website.

In an alleged statement by ISIS hackers, it was claimed that the reason for attacking was to take revenge on David Cameron because Junaid Hussain a Muslim terrorist of Britain was assassinated during an air strike that USA led in 2015.

The assaults come after hackers affiliated to ISIS threatened towards targeting Mark Zuckerberg the Facebook founder; and Jack Dorsey of Twitter because they disabled the hackers' social networking A/Cs.

Also, after Junaid Hussain, leader of the earlier CC or Cyber Caliphate was assassinated during one drone attack inside Syria during August 2015, the gang was disbanded but subsequently it was replaced with the CCA (Cyber Caliphate Army) as ISIS' fresh cyber-unit.

The group, which Hussain steered forward, had earned reputation, while it was able in hacking as well as disclosing personal details regarding numerous US servicemen. This was the reason that got Hussain listed on America Army's assassination targets.

Alongside Hussain, American officials as well arrested Kosovo national Ardit Ferizi who was an erstwhile member of hacking crew KHS (Kosovo Hackers' Security) which carried out several of the actual hacks by Cyber Caliphate.
