The FBI arrested two men on charges of online child pornography after agents were able to hack into their computers to identify their true IP addresses that were hidden by Tor, Hacked.com reports.

The FBI hacked thousands of computers as part of a “bulk hacking campaign” to fight child pornography.

“In order to fight what it has called one of the largest child pornography sites on the dark web, the FBI hacked over a thousand computers,” Motherboard detailed.

The ACLU called the news “simply unprecedented.”

The FBI said some of the sites “contained some of the most extreme child abuse imagery one could imagine, and others included advice on how sexual abusers could avoid detection online.”

The site was “the largest remaining known child pornography hidden service in the world,” the FBI said.

“Fifteen-hundred or so of these cases are going to end up getting filed out of the same, underlying investigation,” Colin Fieman, a federal public defender involved in several related cases, told Motherboard in a phone interview.

“There will probably be an escalating stream of these [cases] in the next six months or so,” Fieman added. “There is going to be a lot in the pipeline.”

An ISIS fighter is accused of executing his own mother, according to a well-respected Syrian refugee human rights group, the Washington Post reports. 

A 20-year-old Syrian fighter shot his mother “in front of hundreds of people near the post office … where she was employed, according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights in Britain.

ISIS arrested his mother after she had an argument with her son over his support of ISIS.

“His mother spoke with him and asked him to leave ISIS and leave Raqqa to go to a different area of Syria and Turkey,” Rami Abdulrahman of the Syrian Observatory said in a telephone interview, using an acronym for the Islamic State. “… After that he told ISIS and, 1-2-3, they arrest his mother.”

A Syrian refugee was among two people arrested for having alleged ties with ISIS, the Daily Mail reports. 

The men are accused of trying to assist terrorist organizations affiliated with ISIS.

Omar Faraj Saeed Al Harden, 24, of Houston, was indicted on three charges of trying to provide material support to ISIS.

Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, of Sacramento,is accused of traveling to Syria to fight in Syria. Authorities said Al-Jayab came to the U.S. as a refugee from Syria.

Authorities said there was no evidence that either men planned an attack in the U.S., but they are considered potentially dangerous.

‘This is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists,’ Abbott said in a statement.

‘I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans.’
