A British-educated businessman who later joined Islamic State (ISIS) militant group in Syria has been killed in a US drone strike. Siful Haque Sujan , a Bangladesh-born man, was killed on 10 December 2015 by a US drone strike near Raqqa, Syria. Sujan has been described as one of the ISIS's top computer hackers who also coordinated anti-surveillance technology and weapons development by a senior United States Army official. A statement issued by Army Col. Steve Warren , a spokesman from Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve, via CENTCOM (United States Central Command) reads : "Sujan was an external operations planner and a United Kingdom-educated computer systems engineer. Sujan supported ISIS hacking efforts, anti-surveillance technology and weapons development. Now that he is dead, ISIL has lost a key link between networks." The 31-year-old man not just suspected of running a global money-laundering ring for ISIS from his former base i

NSA Accidentally Took Down Syria's Internet While Infiltrating Central Router System

Before proceeding towards the story, let’s first go back two years to figure out what was wrong when Syria was completely blackout - sudden disconnect from the Internet - which lasted for the period of three days in 2012. Is that the Syrian government behind the blackout ? The outage took place during a period of intense fighting in the country’s still-ongoing civil war. So, it was supposed that may it be the government’s fault. But, the Syrian Minister of Information said that the government didn’t disable the Internet, instead the outage was caused by a cable being cut by some terrorists. When investigated, it was unlikely to be the case. So, Who was actually behind Syria Blackout ? NSA? Yup! It was the same NSA who was behind a number of major happenings. National Security Agency ( NSA ) – the God-like powered agency that had ruled over the privacy of the entire world from countries to individuals, the one with master access to read anyone’s data, intruded into larg

Earlier reports based on Snowden 's documents revealed the existence of the NSA's PRISM program , and indicate that the National Security Agency spied on Brazilians. On other End, President Obama said that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its citizens and The United States may have to take military action against Syria. Against same issues, yesterday various pages on  NASA 's website were hacked by a Brazilian Hacker named " #BMPoC " and the visitors to the pages were first greeted with a pop-up window which reads "DO NOT ATTACK THE SYRIAN " followed by another reading " U.S. SPY STOP THE BRAZIL " before the deface page appears. The complete deface message on the page was: Stop spying on us. The Brazilian population do not support your attitude! The Illuminati is now visibly acting! Obama heartless! Inhumane! You have no family? The point in the entire global population is supporting you. NOBODY! We do not want

The Syrian government is almost certainly responsible for a blackout Thursday that shut down virtually all Internet service in the country. However, The Syrian government blamed the outage in internet service and mobile coverage in some areas on the armed groups' sabotage acts against cellular broadcast centers. Hacker with name Teamr00t has hacked and defaced Syrian government and showed their support for the people of Syria against President Bashaar Al-Assad's latest actions in shutting down the internet. Deface message President Bashaar Al-Assad You have taken a step too far in shutting down the internet so the outside world cannot see the horrific crimes you are committing upon your own people and this will not be tolerated by the world watching! The Syrian people have the right to freedom of speech, the right to live a normal happy life and the right to have access to the internet to connect with the rest of the world. By shutting down the internet you have denied your

The Syrian situation is getting worse day by day, the regime is attacking dissident mercilessly meanwhile the world wide community is standing by and watch helplessly stopped by prohibition of military intervention imposed by Russia and China, historical allies of Damascus. Syria regime is fierce against the rebels in the streets as in cyber space, we have already discussed of the persecution of opposition made using spyware to catch the rebels.
