ISIS Hack of Pentagon Accounts Traced Back to Maryland

At the exact time President Obama was delivering a speech on cybersecurity, hackers claiming to be ISIS took over the social media accounts of the U.S. Central Command leaving threatening warnings.

The hacker accounts have been traced back to Maryland, which just happens to be home of the NSA

Paul Joseph Watson reports:According to the group which identifies itself as Anonymous, the ISIS hack of the Pentagon’s Twitter accounts traces back to Maryland – home of the National Security Agency.

Twitter and YouTube accounts belonging to the U.S. military command that oversees operations in the Middle East were reportedly hacked by ISIS sympathizers earlier today, with messages being sent out for almost an hour before the accounts were temporarily shut down.

“American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back, ISIS,” the hackers posted on the U.S. Central Command Twitter feed.

USA Today reports, “A Twitter account from a group identifying itself as Anonymous said Monday it had tracked the source of the hack to Maryland, but that was not confirmed by official sources.”

Maryland is of course home to the National Security Agency, an entity that has perfected the art of hacking and is able to compromise and take control of different systems and platforms “at the speed of light”.
