Pro-ISIS Hacking Group Tries To Hack Google But Gets The Wrong Site

Pro-ISIS hackers vowed to target Google, but they hacked the wrong one — and then got counter-hacked. Oops.

A pro-ISIS hacking team had promised to hack Google, so it did. But it got the wrong one.

Instead it hacked an Indian website called Add Google Online — so not quite Google.

And then the ISIS hackers got hacked by someone else.

A hacker who goes by n3far1ous left the message "Eat this, ISIS."

The pro-ISIS hacking group, or the "Caliphate Cyber Army," likes to hack low-profile sites, like this store that sells scales or this Middle Eastern sign store.

Probably the group's biggest success was hacking the U.S. Central Command accounts on Twitter and YouTube.
