The Islamic State terror group (ISIS) has claimed they will behead the third richest man in the world, Mark Zuckerberg.
The group released propaganda images featuring Mark in an orange jumpsuit and beheaded including the message “Go to hell Mark”. The group also claimed to have hacked Facebook.
The poster includes the message “go to hell Mark”, and is part of a campaign dubbed #OpTheWorld. Sixgill, an online cybersecurity firm, revealed the threats to the Daily Star as ISIS appears to ramp up their hacking operations.
A number of other websites have been targeted some successfully according to Sixgill. The so-called United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) recently came together as several pro-ISIS hacking groups.
And their activities increased since May, reports from Sixgill say, with East Asian government websites forced offline by their efforts.
The hacker’s latest propaganda calls for other groups to target Facebook. In one particular grotesque image Zuckerberg appears beheaded, with a red “hacked” message.
The group has also shared screenshots which claim to be of hacked Facebook pages. Sixgill told Daily Star Online: “We assume that ISIS is targeting Facebook to retaliate against its measures to censor pro-ISIS content and groups, and on more general level because Facebook is seen as a Western symbol.”
