Hacktivists associated with Anonymous claim they have uncovered Isis plans for attacks today in Paris, the U.S., Italy, Indonesia and Lebanon.
A report published yesterday confirmed that Anonymous had allegedly identified three “at risk” events in Paris.
They included a demonstration by women’s rights group Collectif du droit des femmes, concerts by Cigales Electroniques with Vocodecks and RE-Play & Rawtor, and an event called Concrete Invites Drumcode.
The document went on to state that the women’s right rally had been cancelled and the event at the Concrete nightclub had been “probably cancelled”.
Other events which had “unconfirmed” threats included the WWE Survivor Series in Atlanta, Feast of Christ the King celebrations in Rome and worldwide, Indonesian event Al-Jihad: One Day One Juz, a concert by Five Finger Death Punch in Milan, and University Pastoral Day at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik in Lebanon.
The hacktivists behind this said the information was received from several pro Isis accounts and that all the attacks were meant to take place today.
They say they shared information on these potential attacks with official authorities days ago, but decided to take matters into their own hands after governments failed to act on the information.
The Anonymous Twitter account @YourAnonNews later tweeted that the group did not “spread any rumours” about possible ISIS attacks.
The collective declared “total war” on Isis following the horrific attacks in Paris which left 130 people dead and 352 injured earlier this month.
It vowed to “launch the biggest operation ever” and “hunt down” every supporter of IS online.
