Hackers have come up with an ingenious new way to troll ISIS fighters and supporters on Twitter.

Vigilante hackers are spamming pro-Islamic State accounts by following them with thousands of fake porn accounts.

The fake accounts, or ‘pornbots’, feature nothing but graphic images and barely ever tweet, meaning they can’t be deleted as spam.

Hackers are targeting extremists who have shown support for the jihadists using certain hashtags and then strike rapidly, sometimes following them with several hundred accounts in just a few minutes, The Mirror reports.

One of their targets, a prolific French ISIS account, recently shared a video of an ISIS execution of six Syrians with the caption: “Ahh, I love these videos…”

Another account, also run by a French extremist fighter, often tweets about journalists in Syria and Iraq, warning that they are just as responsible for the deaths of innocent people as American soldiers. According to The Mirror, he was followed by 800 pornbots in just a few hours. He had around 50 followers beforehand.

Some accounts have been spammed by as many as 4,000 of the explicit images, which the jihadists find incredibly offensive as they follow a strict version of Islam.

Several ISIS supporters have since made their accounts private while they find a way to stop the wave of naked bodies to their page, according to The Daily Mail.

But it looks like the culprit – who is thought to possibly be Anonymous – isn’t stopping anytime soon.
