A group of computer hackers from Iraq has started a cyber operation against ISIS by posting pornographic images into its communication channels.

Members of the hacker group, which refers to itself Daeshgram, told Newsweek that the purpose is to show distrust among ISIS supporters about messages from the violent group’s leadership.

In one example, the hackers photoshopped a picture of a naked woman into an announcement about the opening of a media center in Syria. The image made it look like the extremists were watching porn.

Daeshgram’s most striking target is Amaq, which one hacker referred to as “a so-called news agency” for ISIS, Fox News reported.

The group took the site offline with a denial-of-service attack before they created a replica of the site with messages mimicking the terror group’s views and beliefs.

“Daesh responded by telling supporters not to trust the Amaq links,” a hacker said. “They had fights among themselves about the topic and deleted each other from groups.”
