    U.S. Downplays the incident.

    Central Command says there was "no operational impact" on military networks following the hacking of their Twitter account #CENTCOM

    This likely happened because hactivist group Anonymous announced several days ago they are going to go after ISIS. So this could be a message from ISIS to show Anonymous how sophisticated there own hacking skills are.
