Anonymous is an international network of activist computer hackers which has claimed responsibility for many cyberattacks, including others on ISIS and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). Following the January attacks against the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris they attacked websites related to Islamic State and took down thousands of ISIS twitter accounts.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a series of coordinated attacks in Paris where police say attackers worked in three synchronized teams, wearing matching suicide vests and carrying the same weapons laid siege on a stadium, a concert hall and Paris cafes leaving 129 people dead and over 350 wounded, 99 of them seriously.
