The official Twitter and YouTube accounts of CENTCOM—the Pentagon branch that oversees American military power in the Middle East—is now an unofficial propaganda machine of the ISIS "Cyber Caliphate."

Update: CENTCOM's Twitter account has been suspended, but you can view a cached version of the defaced site here:

The @CENTCOM account is now host to a series of threatening messages:

Along with attached images that appear to list the contact information for Pentagon personnel, both active and retired:

Central Command's YouTube channel is now the home of delightful videos like "FLAMES OF WAR," which shows acts of violence against American soldiers:

And guerrilla classic, "O Soldiers of Truth Go Forth":

A Pastebin statement was also tweeted out, including links to alleged "leaked" (and pretty boring) Pentagon materials:

Pentagon networks hacked



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the CyberCaliphate under the auspices of ISIS continues its CyberJihad. While the US and its satellites kill our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan we broke into your networks and personal devices and know everything about you.

You'll see no mercy infidels. ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now.

We won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children.

U.S. soldiers! We're watching you!

Here's a part of confidential data from your mobile devices:

Defaced Twitter and YouTube accounts won't affect the ability of CENTCOM to find and kill ISIS fighters—and none of the data released seems to be anything sensitive (if they're even real). But the fact that ISIS (or ISIS sympathizers) could easily take control of online accounts run by the Pentagon is deeply, deeply embarrassing, and indicative of a federal government that still can't fucking use a decent password. Good thing CyberISIS-9000 didn't try breaking into something that really matters, or this could be a lot more than humiliating.
