This ISIS hacker should have placed himself on a “kill list” because he’s dead now, thanks to a well-placed U.S. drone.
Osed Agha, the leader of a diabolical ISIS hacking group who distributed a 2016 “kill list” including the names, addresses, and other contact information of 8 thousand Americans is now worm food.
The leader of a notorious ISIS hacking group responsible for distributing so-called ‘kill lists,’ has reportedly been killed in a U.S. drone strike.
Osed Agha, head of United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) hacking group was allegedly targeted by a U.S. drone strike on the Islamic State’s de-facto capital Raqqa, according to encrypted Telegram messages observed by The Foreign Desk.
Though jihadis initially remained skeptical at the news of Agha’s death, the group’s Telegram channel posted a video Thursday acknowledging “Our leader Osed Agha has been killed by a U.S. airstrike.”
The White House has not yet confirmed the strike.
The UCC group routinely posts ‘kill lists,’ containing names and addresses of Americans, ranging from ordinary citizens to police officers and State Department employees. Experts contend that much of the data is obtained from publicly available databases, though officials disagree whether these lists pose a serious threat or are intended to instill fear and panic among Americans.
