In this month the hacking combined Ghost Security Group ascertained that ISIS has been doling out an application that supplies news as well as videos that are laced with propaganda. This app that is Android-based is fundamentally a news portal that Amaq News Agency runs. This agency is thought to have tied with ISIS. Going by a tweet that was made this week by Michael S. Smith, who is the principal of Kronos Advisory, this app shows news as well as videos displaying capital punishments and victories of battlefield. According to him this app has been designed for “streamlining access” to the “propaganda” of the militant group.
Some snaps of this app that Smith had posted on twitter is evidence of its having the name of “Amaq Agency.” When this app is started by a user it displays a scrollable news feed as well as icons for playing videos. For making it more convenient this app provides users with the facility of changing font size. It also has options that users can use for making the feed mechanically check for all fresh posts. It is also able to be updated mechanically every time the developers of this app send out fresh editions of the program.
