The Facebook clone claims it is independent and not actually sponsored by ISIS (even though it has ISIS logos all over its homepage). It says its goal is to show the world that they don’t only “live in caves” and “carry guns,” and they vow to “will rule the world by Allah’s permission.”
Khelafabook was set up by a man in Mosul, Iraq, according to The Independent, and is hosted in Egypt. There’s also an associated Twitter account which is linked to from the site.
The site first popped up last week, but has already been taken offline “to protect the info and details of its members,” according to a message on the page.
After it was taken down, Twitter accounts associated with Anonymous appeared to claim responsibility, as Vocativ points out.
For the the time being they’ll have to look elsewhere to share their terrorist pancake recipes.
The Lizard Squad group, who brought down PSN the other month and the Malaysia Airlines website just last week, are back again. This time it's Taylor Swift, the radicallypositive writer of pop earworms. What could her password have been? Something tells me shakeshakeshake would have been too obvious...
Update: Swift is back in control of her social media after this little snafu, claiming that any potentially compromising photos following this hack are fake (fake fake):
Meanwhile, alleged screencaps of her DMs have showed up, conversing in a totally normal way with Nick Jonas, PewDiePie and musician BØRNS. The stars, they DM pointless crap JUST LIKE US.
