Isis have once again found themselves the target of hackers. They’ve been rickrolled in the past, but this time it’s p**nbots causing hassle. According to AhlulBayt News the p**nbots do not tweet, but just follow known Isis accounts with hundreds of accounts in a minute, all of them featuring graphic imagery, something unlikely to impress Isis fighters trying to concentrate.

The hacker collective Anonymous was behind the rickrolling epidemic of 2015, a movement that saw Isis hashtags bombarded with Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”. So far, no person or organisation has come forward to claim responsibility for this p**nbot pile-on. Some Twitter users following developments have commented that a lot of Isis accounts have locked while they find to find a solution.

The Isis media agency Amaq reportedly had to disable its account, while another account saw its follower count jump from 50 to 800. Normally, that’d be a cause for celebration but alas it was just 750 non-tweeting p**nbots. You know what they say – sex sells...and shuts down Isis Twitter accounts.
