Advisory: Be careful of what you read on social media. The algorithms used by these platforms have no regard for Biblical truth. They target your emotions to keep you engaged on their site so their advertisers can drop more ads. These platforms exist to enrich their stockholders. Consider God’s promise to Believers in James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
The hacker group distributed the list on the encrypted messaging service, Telegram, calling for Isis supporters to target the individuals listed. “O wolves of the Islamic State, [this is a] very important list, kill them immediately,” the hacker group said.
According to reports, over 280 names on the list belong to Indian nationals, although it is still uncertain if those listed are civilians or military and/or government officials. Coincidentally, some reports credits the UCC (United Cyber Caliphate) for releasing the list. However, since the CCA was incorporated into the UCC when the various pro-Isis hacker groups were merged in April 2016, the credit could perhaps be attributed to both hacker groups.
It also remains unclear as to why Isis would target those in the list. According to Voactiv, the list appears to be random and has been lifted from an unnamed online business platform not unlike LinkedIn, which was created in 1999. This indicates that the methods used to obtain the list of personal information may have little to do with technical skills and sophisticated knowledge of hacking.
Pro-Isis hacker groups have of late taken to releasing similar kill lists on social media. Previous such lists included names and personal details of US military personnel as well as civilians. The UCC recently released its [longest ever kill list](http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/isis-longest-ever-kill-list-targeting-over-8000-people-released-by-united-cyber-caliphate-1564450) of 8,000 names, which not unlike the current list, likely contained little to no new information on the people, which wasn’t already available online. The UCC made headlines when it released a hit list of [thousands of New Yorkers](http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/isis-linked-hackers-release-hit-list-thousands-new-yorkers-urging-followers-target-them-1557556) in April 2016, shortly after announcing itself as the joint hacking arm of Isis. However, the list was later found to contain outdated information, which may also be the case in this instance.
A recent report by ICIT (Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology) indicates that although Isis hacker groups are currently fairly unskilled, the collective is gaining momentum and has the tools necessary to become a major threat to world governments in the near future.
Pro-ISIS hackers post ‘kill list’ of US government department employees
**‘Kill list’ of 43 people linked to various US government departments **
The posts – by United Cyber Caliphate – were released on social media app Telegram
** But ‘the hack’ doesn’t appear to actually reveal any information that isn’t already out in the public domain**
Site Vocativ said many numbers listed were general department contacts
**Telegram has previously shut down ISIS-linked accounts, but more just pop up to replace them **
