Anonymous is a hacker group that is known to have launched cyber attacks on private persons and business organizations or national governments that it does not like for whatever reasons, and some of its past targets include Mastercard, PayPal, the Church of Scientology and several other groups.
The activist group of hackers called on people everywhere to launch a massive online assault against ISIS or Daesh – a derogatory term used to refer to ISIS in the West after the militant Islamic group carried out a terrorist attack that killed 130 people on November 13 in Paris.
"We ask you to show your support and help against ISIS by joining us and trolling them // do not think you have to be part of Anonymous, anyone can do this and does not require special skills," Anonymous wrote. "We ask you to take part of this on Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // Youtube //In the "Real World."
The hacker group asked people to mock ISIS by defacing their photos online and replacing some of them with images of goats while making a mockery of their wives and families and missions among other damaging, trolling methods.

Anonymous posted a video in which a masked man speaking in French told ISIS directly that “the French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger,” possibly referring to the November 13 terror attacks that took place when the US rock band “Angels of Death” came to town.
