The hacker group Anonymous has declared war on Islamic extremist groups following the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.
In a video posted to YouTube, the group vowed to shut down all social media networks and websites associated with terrorist groups. They warned, "against us, you can do nothing."
Despite beginning as a group that hacked purely for fun, Anonymous has grown to produce politically refined critiques, question the trustworthiness of government and entertainment organizations and earn a certain level of clout on social media.
