Social media accounts belonging the United States Central Command were hacked on Monday by a group claiming to be ISIS sympathizers.

The attack comes at the same time that President Obama is promoting his plans to bolster cybersecurity.

The hackers posted a number of eerie warnings on the Twitter account @CENTCOM, which has since been suspended. They changed the profile images to those in the photo above with the words "CyberCaliphate" and "I love you ISIS."

"AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS," they wrote. They also posted spreadsheets with contact info for retired U.S. army generals and maps of North Korea and China. Nothing posted was classified, however, and it is all available publicly online.

Their YouTube account was compromised as well with two new videos added called "Flames of War ISIS Video" and "O Soldiers of Truth Go Forth," according to Reuters.

"We can confirm that the U.S. Central Command's Twitter and YouTube accounts were compromised earlier today. We are taking appropriate measures to address the matter," Centcom said in a statement.

Another tweet linked to the following message on Pastbin:

"While the US and its satellites kill our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan we broke into your networks and personal devices and know everything about you," they wrote. "You'll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now. We won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children. U.S. soldiers! We're watching you!"

You still can’t actually dislike someone’s post on Facebook, but now you can use the social network to end your marriage.

A New York Supreme Court justice has ruled that a woman named Ellanora Baidoo can legally serve her husband a divorce summons through Facebook messenger.

She legally married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku back in 2009, but because he wouldn’t go through with a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony, she now wants out of the relationship. They separated, and the only way she has been able to contact him is on the phone or through Facebook, so there has been no way to get him the required paperwork.

Until now. Her lawyer will be messaging him once a week for three weeks, or until he finally responds.

A 2013 study suggested that excessive Facebook usage is likely to cause relationship problems in the first place, which could lead to a breakup or divorce.

So it’s all now just an endless cycle of drama and heartbreak online.

And until your soon-to-be ex responds, it’s probably best to change your status to “It’s Complicated.”
