(Newser) – Just months after the feds warned American troops that ISIS might use the likes of Facebook and Twitter to find them, ISIS has posted the names, ranks, photos, and home addresses of 100 American soldiers, reports ABC News. Calling itself the "Islamic State Hacking Division," the group put out a call for its "brothers residing in America" and lone wolves to act against the servicemembers, notes Sky News; the terror group says the 100 are involved with the airstrike campaign against it. "I can't confirm the validity of the information, but we are looking into it," a Pentagon rep said in a statement. "The safety of our service members is always a concern." The military says it's working to notify those on the list of the breach. While the hackers allege the data came from military records, ABC notes that material including photos appeared to originate on social media sites.
