Islamic State Doxes US Soldiers, Airmen, Calls On Supporters To Kill Them

An anonymous reader writes in with this story about the latest weapon used by ISIS: doxing. “Middle East terrorist organization Islamic State (ISIS) has called on its followers take the fight to 100 members of the United States military residing in the US. A group calling itself the ‘Islamic State Hacking Division’ has posted names, addresses, and photographs of soldiers, sailors, and airmen online, asking its ‘brothers residing in America’ to murder them, according to Reuters. Although the posting purports to come from the ‘Hacking Division,’ US Department of Defense officials say that none of their systems appear to have been breached by the group. Instead, the personal data was almost certainly culled from publicly available sources, a DoD official told the New York Times on the condition of anonymity.”
