Since then, The ‘Anonymous’ Group has been launching massive cyber attacks against ISIS, a terror group who were responsible for the terrorist attack against Charlie Hebdo in Paris. And under this operation dubbed as #OpISIS, ‘Anonymous’ have taken down hundreds of Twitter and few Facebook accounts which were used by the ISIS for its own propaganda.
