Anonymous Has Been Fighting ISIS

Anonymous Declares War on ISIS:

...Anonymous first mobilized against ISIS in January, after the terror attacks on Parisian newspaper Charlie Hebdo, and has since targeted 149 websites, ​101,000 Twitter accounts and 5900 propaganda videos, ​The Telegraph​ reports.

While the efficacy of shutting down Twitter accounts in slowing the spread of extremism has been disputed, it's clear that breaking up the means of communication for online extremists will require more resources, and skill, than ever. Reports today that ISIS operatives can communicate through PlayStation 4 and online games, without speaking or typing, indicate the sophistication and scale of the problem.
