    This is one outfit (Annonomous) that you do NOT want to mess with... These are the Guys that invented the "Dark Net" over 15 years ago... And NO, They are NOT Virgins.... They wear both BLACK & WHITE Hats.... And if they decide to mess with you, you are TOTALLY Screwed... I have only a very tenuous Contact Point with them, but they have done ME a favor, or two, in the distant past...

    Another group potentially fighting the barbarians.

    The secret hackers trying to bring down ISIS - Nov. 20, 2015
    In July, a threat emerged from an ISIS-associated Twitter account with few followers. The account alluded to an upcoming terror attack at a beach resort in Tunisia. Just a month before, a similar attack left 38 dead.
    It may have gone undetected if it weren't for a rogue hacker group called Ghost Security Group.

    The group, which is made up of counterintelligence officials and computer specialists, had been monitoring the Twitter account for a month. While the under-the-radar account only had a handful of followers, many of them were high-profile ISIS members.

    The hacktivist group immediately looked for intelligence contractors who could relay the info to the authorities. They found terrorist analyst Michael S. Smith II through Twitter. Smith, who works at defense consulting firm Kronos Advisory, serves as a counterterrorism adviser to members of Congress and was responsive to Ghost Security. He became the group's conduit to authorities.
