Anonymous has released a series of ‘how to’ guides for people wanting to join the Operation Paris cyberwar campaign against ISIS online.
The guides, which are essentially a dummy’s guide to hacking websites, were posted to an IRC channel used by the group to share information on ‘OpParis’.
The detailed instructions include methods to hack Islamic State-associated websites and how to take down social media accounts related to the terror group, according to International Business Times.
Three types of guides are available: a ‘NoobGuide’ for people who want to learn how to hack, a ‘Reporter’ guide, that explains how to set up a Twitterbot for unearthing IS accounts and a ‘Searcher’ guide for finding IS websites.
The guides also include instructions on how to carry out cyberattacks against these websites using distributed denial-of-service attacks.
Anonymous is stepping up its attempts to recruit people to its operations, after it released a step-by-step guide for shutting down ISIS-associated Twitter accounts following the Charlie Hebdo attacks earlier this year.
The group have said they are launching their ‘biggest operation ever’ and since Sunday, OpParis has reportedly already led to more than 5,500 IS-related Twitter accounts being taken down.
The Anonymous member who posted the guided reportedly said: ‘There should be plenty of work to keep you occupied so get going.
‘If you wish to submit anything of value, place your findings onand share to the link to one of the channel operators and we can talk about what to do next.’
