Pentagon ponders cyberwar on ISIL

 


WASHINGTON – The Pentagon is considering increasing the pace and scope of cyberattacks against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), arguing that more aggressive efforts to disable the extremist group’s computers, servers and cellphones could help curtail its appeal and disrupt potential terrorist attacks.

Military hackers and coders at Cyber Command, based at Fort Meade, Md., have developed an array of malware that could be used to sabotage the militants’ propaganda and recruitment capabilities, said U.S. officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about internal discussions.
