Anonymous has been trolling and conducting cyber attacks on the terrorist group long before the Paris terrorist attacks took place. It was due to Anonymous and its cyber attacks that ISIS was forced to move to the dark web. However, researchers keeping an eye on ISIS’s social media activities claim the hacktivist should  rather than deleting their accounts from the Internet.

Anonymous has vowed to remove ISIS and its sympathizers from the Internet. The group is alsoconducting cyber attacks on Turkey for allegedly buying oil from the terrorists. In the past couple of weeks, Anonymous conducted several cyber attacks on Turkish banks and DNS servers.
