The Islamic State’s hacking division released a list of names of people around the world including the U.S. and India and called for their immediate deaths.
An Islamic State affiliated group called the Caliphate Cyber Army (CCA) released the names, addresses and email addresses of some 4,000 people from around the world on social media in a “kill list” according the International Business Times.
Those marked for death come from countries including the USA, UK, France, Canada and India. Almost half are reportedly from the USA.
The hackers released the list on the encrypted messaging service Telegram, with the directive “O wolves of the Islamic State, [this is a] very important list, kill them immediately.”
The list appears to be random and seems to have been taken from a business networking platform, according to Vocativ.
EDITORS NOTE: According to the International Business Times, “The list contains personal information, including names, email and actual addresses of around 8,138 people. Most of the addresses listed are believed to belong to people who reside in the US, Canada and Australia, 7, 848 of whom were found to be US residents. Of those, 1,445 were found to reside in California, 643 in Florida, 341 in Washington, 333 in Texas, 333 in Illinois and 290 in New York.”
