Anonymous takes down ISIS website, replaces it with Viagra ad

Anonymous seems to be going all out with waging war against terrorist group ISIS. Ghost Sec, a group related to the global hacktivist network, defaced a website that promotes ISIS propaganda, and replaced its contents with an advertisement for the sexual performance-enhancing drug Viagra.

"Enhance your calm; Please gaze upon this lovely ad so we can upgrade our infrastructure to give you ISIS content you all so desperately crave," the message on the hacked version of the website stated. The message added that there is just "too much ISIS" in this world, and that "too many people are into ISIS-stuff."

While the defaced website was still up, it was reportedly possible to actually purchase the aforementioned drug, along with Prozac, on the page that the site linked to, with payment accepted in Bitcoin.

As part of the war against ISIS, Anonymous recently took down the terrorists' main communication forum. However, such acts are said to have pushed ISIS towards moving some of their operations to the 'dark web'.

Indeed, some analysts believe that Anonymous' moves against ISIS are just "band-aid" solutions to the problem, and that defacing websites and taking down forums are just temporary inconveniences for ISIS, rather than an effective strategy towards defeating them.
