The US Federal Bureau of Investigation is taking seriously the information released by the Anonymous hacktivist group that the Islamic State terrorists are planning an attack on the US city of Atlanta, local media reported Saturday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Anonymous group claimed earlier Saturday that ISIL militants were planning an assault on a World Wrestling Entertainment event, due to take place in Atlanta on Sunday evening, according to the International Business Times portal.

The WSB-TV channel reported, citing an FBI source, that the investigators were taking the threat seriously, but there was no need to panic. There is no known active plot targeting the event, according to the source.

Just days after hacking group Anonymous declared a web war on ISIL, the fight seems to be started: hacktivists have presented three various manuals for internet users, explaining in detail how to detect and compromise terrorists’ accounts, militants responded with a pack of counter measures. - Sputnik International

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency is working closely with the FBI, the Georgia information sharing and analysis center and others to evaluate the threat, according to the channel.

The Anonymous group has declared a cyberwar against ISIL in the wake of the deadly Paris attacks on November 13, threatening to expose Twitter accounts affiliated with the group and disturb their communications via spam.

According to the hacktivists, ISIL is reportedly targeting other locations including Paris, Rome and Milan, as well as sites in Indonesia and Lebanon.

On November 13, at least 130 people were killed and over 350 injured in suicide bombings and shootings at a football stadium, a concert hall and restaurants in the French capital. Islamic State terrorists claimed responsibility for the attack.
