Outrageous Pro-ISIS Twitter Account Starts Targeting NJ Transit Officers
A pro-ISIS Twitter account has published the information of dozens of New Jersey transit officers in calls for supporters to carry out attacks against them.
The propaganda group is known as the Caliphate Cyber Army, or CCA, Laura Ingle reported on Wednesday.
It is the same organization that released names of Minnesota police officers on a so-called “kill list” earlier this month, she said.
This time, the account published a series of tweets that had the names, addresses and home phone numbers of 55 officers - encouraging its supporters to carry out lone wolf attacks against them.
New Jersey transit officials say their website was not hacked, but some information was breached from an outside vendor.
The tweets have now been taken down, and state officials are investigating alongside the DHS and FBI.
