The US Central Command Twitter feed appears to have been hacked by a group claiming to be Islamic State sympathizers.

"American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back," the Centcom Twitter feed said on Monday.

"In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the CyberCaliphate continues its CyberJihad."

Images were also posted showing documents containing the contact details of current and retired military officers, including home addresses and email accounts.

"ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base... we won't stop! We know everything about you, your wives and children."

The hackers also posted what appeared to be military plans associated with China as well as information on North Korea.

Military officials have not yet commented.

**.

It has been 'predicted' by serious analysts that those who have made the rise of ISIS possible will try to use Islamism against China in the near future. It's all about geopolitics.

US Central Command's Twitter and YouTube accounts have been hacked by a group claiming to back Islamic State.

One message said: "American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back."

It was signed by Isis, another name for the Islamic State. Some internal military documents also appeared on the Centcom Twitter feed.

Centcom said it was taking "appropriate measures". The Twitter account was later taken down so no tweets could be viewed.

The hack happened as President Barack Obama was giving a speech on cybersecurity.

Reflecting on major breaches like a recent hack of Sony Pictures, Mr Obama said in his speech the US had been reminded of "enormous vulnerabilities for us as a nation and for our economy".

His spokesman Josh Earnest said the US is looking into the Centcom hacking.

He said they were investigating the extent of the incident, and that there was a significant difference between a large data breach and the hacking of a Twitter account.

The hack occurred as Mr Obama warned about cybersecurity

BBC saying that it was some pro ISIS. They usually get this tech type of work done by asian jihadis.
Will U.S. see this as an attack and send ground forces?
