A few months ago, we interviewed the hacker calling himself, Wauchula Ghost, who led the GhostSec hacker collective targeting ISIS. In the last week, Wauchula Ghost has been attracting even more attention as he has been successfully compromising the Twitter accounts of ISIS sympathizers, and posting gay porn on those accounts in retaliation for the Orlando attack.

In this video interview, which is now timely again, we learned how they target and attack ISIS, how they maintain anonymity, and how US-based internet services, such as Twitter, are not doing enough to stop ISIS. Given the latest events, we are reposting the videos so that you can learn more about Wauchula Ghost and GhostSec and how you can potentially help them accomplish their mission. Watch the video below.
