A STARTUP from Silicon Valley has been caught in the middle of the cyberwar between Anonymous and Islamic State, with the hacking collective accusing it of helping keep terrorist websites online.
The company, known as CloudFlare, is a content-distribution network which prevents small to medium-sized websites from crashing by absorbing internet traffic when their servers become inundated.
As the start-up has no strict guideline in terms of the clientele it allows to use its service, a number of IS related websites have enlisted its help to prevent Anonymous from taking them offline.
According to Epoch Times, anti-terrorist hacker group Ghost Security has uncovered close to 40 pro-Islamic State websites using the content delivery network.
A breakdown of these sites showed 34 were operated to spread Islamic State propaganda, two offered technical services and four acted as terrorist forums.
As one of the primary methods used by Anonymous is distributed denial-of-service (DDos) attacks, the hacking collective has taken shots at the company for safeguarding these websites.
