article imageHackers replace ISIS site with Viagra ad and message to calm down

By Megan Hamilton     Nov 27, 2015 in Internet
A group associated with the famed hacker collective Anonymous has a message for ISIS, which it promptly displayed by taking down one of the terror organization's sites.
A message, it appears, in the form of an advertisement for Viagra, and a suggestion.
"Calm down." That suggestion was accompanied by an ad for an online pharmacy that offered other male enhancement drugs as well, The Independent reports.
ISIS sites have tried to hide under the cover of the dark web, but the Anonymous-affiliated group GhostSec found the site anyway and popped the ad in place, noting there was "Too Much ISIS."
The ISIS propaganda group appeared on the dark web's Tor browser, encouraging extremists to join them.
That's when GhostSec got its jihad on.
"Enhance your calm," the site stated before it was pulled. "Too many people are into this ISIS-stuff," Raw Story reports. "Please gaze upon this lovely ad so we can upgrade our infrastructure to give you ISIS content you all so desperately crave."
The ad then directed curious Internet viewers to the pharmacy, which notably accepts Bitcoin for the drugs in question.
You'll also see a reference to Twitter's infamous pot-themed "error 420" message, New York Magazine reports.
