A few hours after the Paris attacks, security experts found that a new ISIS propaganda hub appeared on the Darknet. The Dark Web is a privileged environment for cyber-criminals and state-sponsored hackers due to the anonymity offered by its services. The Dark Web is difficult to monitor for intelligence agencies and it is not so easy to locate members of terrorist organizations like the ISIS that share propaganda content. Daesh, a terrorist group, launched his propaganda on the Dark Web. The website contains translations in English, Turkish, and Russian from the recent statement issued by Daesh claiming credit for the Paris attacks. The website includes a collection of propaganda video and images produced by Al-Hayat Media Center, the media division of Daesh. It is known to the intelligence because it is used to spread content glorifying the jihad against the infidel West, including poems for mujahids and songs. The new Daesh hub also suggests ISIS sympathizer the use of Telegram, a secret encrypted messaging platform that is largely adopted by terrorists.
