A group of hackers linked to ISIS published a hit list targeting thousands of New Yorkers, but federal officials say this isn't tied to any credible threat.
"Who am I? What am I doing on this list?" one person asked WNBC.
A list posted to the messaging app Telegram apparently contained personal data on about 3,000 seemingly random people; officials say outdated or duplicated information accounts for about a third of that list.
