- November 23, 2014
The group has claimed to have infiltrated top Islamic State web forums, according to Laith Alkhouri, a researcher with Flashpoint Partners, a company that tracks online jihadists, but they have also claimed to have hit American pro-democracy websites like the Open Society Foundation and the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative. In March, they also claimed to have jammed the signal of a popular Egyptian satirical show, though Abubakr now admits his group was not responsible for it.
