BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Just days after the hacker group Anonymous pledged to hunt down Islamic State members and launch cyberattacks against their accounts, a separate group of techies claims it has identified a key funding avenue for the terror network – bitcoin accounts. Ghost Security Group, a collective of computer “hacktivists,” says it has located several bitcoin accounts that ISIS uses to fund operations. One account contained $3 million worth of bitcoin, a GhostSec member told Michael K. Smith II, a co-founder of Kronos Advisory, a national security advisory firm. Smith stated that the most common use of the coins were to purchase plane tickets, guns, and at vending machines to buy Snickers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
