TV Network In France Knocked Out By ISIS HackersA French TV Network has been taken down by hackers sympathetic to ISIS.

TV5Monde saw their TV channels, websites, and social networks taken out by hackers.

TV5Monde’s managing director Yves Bigot said “We have been the victim of an extremely powerful cyberattack. The attack affected all our 11 channels, nine general and two specialist, which went dark…At the same time, we have lost control of our social networks and our internet sites. Our entire team is working on restoring the programming you’re used to.”

He added that the attacks are “unprecedented for us and unprecedented in the history of television…When you work in television… and you find out that your 11 channels are down, of course that’s one of the most dreadful things that can happen to you.”

The attack is believed to be in retaliation for Franc’s support for US led airstrikes that have been carried out against ISIS.
