No. Their Twitter account was hacked and used as a platform to display/distribute data stolen from other sources. I believe military mobile devices were referenced as sources.


Why would they need to "hack their Twitter account" to display stolen data?

If they breached security and obtained genuine classified data, then they can put it on facebook if they want. The credibility is in the documents, not the twitter account displaying it.

I hope this is 'realer' than the Sony hack.

These are not computer geeks with the ability to hack anything other then heads off.


Never underestimate an enemy.......especially one with as much funding and growing support as they do.

People used to say this about the IRA, however they had members who had gained degrees at college and went on to use that education for terrorism. Danny McNamee, the guy behind the Hyde Park bombings, plus made the first radio controlled bomb that killed Lord Mountbatten, gained a science degree. We had stuff used against us that doesn't come from the mind of an idiot.

Not bigging them up, just stating that the worst thing you can do is to be complacent about their abilities.

Because it has over 111,000 followers. It's a very rapid way to make a huge impact.

To shove it in their face nothing says fear as much as getting smacked with it.

111k followers on Twitter is nothing...I mean look at Kylie Jenner with her >8 MILLION followers, for crying out loud.

Kylie Jenner Twitter

This just seems random enough to not be random at all...to me anyway.

I'd expect you wouldn't need to hack a social media site to demonstrate you've also hacked the Pentagon.

Nothing confidential has been released according to the Whitehouse.

i was thinking just a while ago that all this 'hacking' stuff could be leading to a point were all Internet could be switched off at someones say so... or there will be bans on those re-routers so people will always get caught and nowhere to hide.

Shout at me if you wish, but I can't help but think our government has been infiltrated over the last few years. Whether it was done intentionally or out of naivety, I'm not sure. Just Google "Muslim Appointees in High Security Positions" and you will be flabbergasted! BHO was the worst thing we ever did to our country, imo.

Islamic radicals have told us repeatedly that they are going to target military people and their families. Why do we continue to not take them seriously. Why do we continue to treat them like "junior varsity".

Like many of you, I think a cybersecurity regulation is being molded.

@centcomrussian also hacked, as well as @centcomarabic

Comments on Twitter indicate sensitive photos of soldiers were posted, as well as top secret communications -- some between John Boehner and Pentagon officials.

Three scenarios.

1) this has been done to coincide with Obama's speech to 'confirm' that extra security and funding are necessary. More strict and powerful laws headed our way perhaps? (Well not my way personally but I'm sure the UK will follow the lead if it is so). Also more reason to attack ISIS.

2) this really is ISIS and they have more capabilities than given credit for. What service personnel details were leaked? If those are genuine details then they can certainly expect some extreme hate mail.

3) carried out by a third party to stir up some crap under the guise of extremists or a group who support them.

I'm new, but I'll forgo an introduction for now. Lurking for ages.

I don't know how to post links as of yet but scanning articles - some of the documents were available on the MIT and Federation of American Scientists websites.

This cannot get more obvious. We are the final target. To crack down on anyone that doubts the MSM under the new " war on cyber-terror" banner. Remember what Cameron said at the UN?

Good grief this is crazy-just saw it on Sky news also.
centcom have twitter to act as bait surely?

But I sure hope those names and adresses are false,or this could be the worst security breach in history.

I hope this is a "live drill" by centcom rather than a true breach by the IS degenerates.

The times we live in...

Considering ISIS view of women and sex in general, it would not surprise me that they would think sexytime photos would be a bigger dealer, than we think it is.

If it is a "snot-nosed pimple-faced teenager", then he/she should expect a heaping helping of "Freedom" to knock on his door any second now.
