CENTCOM Twitter account hacked, suspended. CNN’s Barbara Starr reports.

The Twitter and YouTube accounts for U.S. Central Command were suspended Monday after they were hacked by ISIS sympathizers. The US-controlled @CENTCOM account used by the US Central Command, tweeted out messages threatening attacks on US military personnel and expressing support of ISIS. Almost simultaneously, Central Command’s YouTube channel showed two pro-Isis videos that were uploaded by hackers.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the CyberCaliphate continues its CyberJihad.

— Message propagated on CENTCOM Twitter Account

In a statement, CENTOM said there was no operational impact and no classified information was posted, but physical and e-mail addresses of top commanders were released in a tweet. Some of the documents appeared to list names and phone numbers of members of the military as well as PowerPoint slides and maps.

In other messages from the so-called “CyberCaliphate” the hackers claimed to have captured military secrets, but the documents demonstrated are widely available and amount to non-official information.

The cause of the hacked accounts was unknown. A random password generator could have hit the jackpot with the correct passwords. An insider could have been careless, or could have intentionally released the password. A laptop could have been stolen, a keylogger could have been installed on a computer used by a person that managed the social media accounts. There are many ways that passwords to YouTube or Twitter accounts could have been jeopardized.

CENTCOM military theater responsibilities include countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, including Afghanistan and Iraq. CENTCOM’s main headquarters is located at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.
