A British hacker who joined ISIS’ top ranks carried out global cyber attacks to leak the identity of US military personnel for the terror group’s ‘kill list’.


In 2015 Junaid Hussain became the Number Three leader of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and was on the American government’s most wanted list.


A British terrorist of Pakistani descent who was based in Syria, he recruited a Kosovan hacker to enable attacks on American servicemen and women inside the United States.


At one point he carried out cyber attacks against the US every week with FBI surveillance teams determined to track him down and bring him to justice.


Hussain was killed with two of his bodyguards in a drone strike on a car in a Raqqa petrol station on August 24, 2015.


Hussain, 21 at the time of his death, was married to the ‘White Widow’ Sally Jones, 45, a fellow Briton who had joined ISIS in 2014. She had denied his death through IS-linked Twitter accounts.


His story is now the subject of a book titled Dawn of the Code War: America’s Battle Against Russia, China, and the Rising Global Cyber Threat by John Carlin.


Carlin was a former Assistant Attorney General for the US  Department of Justice’s (DOJ) National Security Division.


According to an interview he gave in 2012, Hussain, who originally went online by the moniker TriCK, said he started hacking at around age 11.


He began playing a game online when another hacker knocked him offline. ‘I wanted revenge so I started googling around on how to hack’, he explained.


‘I joined a few online hacking forums, read tutorials, started with basic social engineering and worked my way up.   


‘I didn’t get my revenge, but I became one of the most hated hackers on this game’.


By 15, he became more interested in politics and found himself sucked online into watching videos of children getting killed in countries like Kashmir and Pakistan and swept into conspiratorial websites about the Freemasons and Illuminati.
