Islamic State hackers have reportedly hacked eight Australians personal accounts and encouraged attacks on them.
It’s reported that the phone numbers, passwords, email addresses and suburbs of the eight Australians were published alongside 1400 others, mainly from the US military.
Those hacked include a Victorian MP, Australian Defence Force employees and their relatives, as well as public servants.

A spreadsheet of personal information including the credit card details of US Air Force members were uploaded online by the Islamic State Hacking Division.
“We have your name and addresses, we are in your… social media accounts,” the post read.
“We are extracting confidential data and passing on your personal information to the soldiers of the khilafah, who soon with the permission of Allah will strike at your necks at your own lands!”
The Australian Federal Police is allegedly investigating the incident.
