US Central Command’s Twitter and YouTube accounts hacked to send threatening, pro-ISIS messages

The Twitter account for U.S. Central Command was apparently hacked on Monday, with pro-ISIS messages plastering the account’s profile.

The first message was posted at 12:29 p.m. ET, with the words “AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS.” and the hashtag “#CyberCaliphate.”

The profile’s image was replaced with a photo that includes the text “i love you isis.” Just before 1 p.m. ET profile and banner images were reverted to their default.

“ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base,” reads one of the tweets.

Meanwhile, the Central Command’s YouTube page now displays propaganda videos in support of ISIS.

The Twitter messages imply ISIS has infiltrated deeper into the Central Command’s networks, and included images depicting what appear to be spreadsheets listing names and addresses of US Army members.

The hackers also provided a link to a .zip file labeled ‘US Army Files’, which included what appeared to be lists of names, addresses and contact information for army officers, as well as budget documents from last year. None of the documents appear to include terribly sensitive information, however.

UPDATE: CENTCOM’s Twitter account has now been suspended.
