A Georgia woman who allegedly was a member of an online group that pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and distributed “kill lists” identifying Americans they wanted their members to target has been charged with conspiring to provide material support to the ISIS.
Kim Anh Vo, 20, first became involved with the United Cyber Caliphate in April 2016 and participated in recruitment efforts to aid the group’s hacking abilities, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Tuesday. The group and its subsidiaries distributed ISIS propaganda and provided “kill lists” that included personal information of members of the State Department and the military.
The article goes on to state the following:
Vo’s involvement with the group from April 2016 to May 2017 was related to recruiting more members to aid the group’s hacking attempts. Vo was responsible for recruiting members between January and February 2017 to craft a video threatening a New York nonprofit organization dedicated to countering the distribution of extremist ideologies online.

The following information is provided in the press release posted on the Justice Department website:
In April 2016, Vo joined the United Cyber Caliphate (UCC), an online group that pledged allegiance to ISIS and committed to carrying out online attacks and cyber intrusions against Americans. Since that time, the UCC and its sub-groups have disseminated ISIS propaganda online, including “kill lists,” which listed the names of individuals – for example, soldiers in the United States Armed Forces and members of the State Department – whom the group instructed their followers to kill. For example, on or about April 21, 2016, the UCC posted online the names, addresses, and other personal identifying information of approximately 3,602 individuals in the New York City area and included a message that stated: “List of most important citizens of #New York and #Brooklyn and some other cities . . . We Want them #Dead.”
Between April 2016 and May 2017, Vo worked on behalf of the UCC to recruit others to join the group and assist with the group’s hacking efforts. Between January and February 2017, Vo recruited other individuals – including a minor residing in Norway – to create online content in support of ISIS, including a video (Video-1) threating a non-profit organization based in New York, New York, which was formed to find and combat the online promotion of extremist ideologies. Video-1 contained messages such as, “You messed with the Islamic State, SO EXPECT US SOON,” followed by a scene displaying a photograph of the organization’s chief executive officer and former U.S. Ambassador (CEO), along with the words: “[CEO], we will get you.”
On or about April 2, 2017, the UCC posted online a kill list containing the names and personal identifying information of over 8,000 individuals, along with a links to another video (Video-2). Video-2 displayed messages stating, in part: “We have a message to the people of the U.S., and most importantly, your president Trump: Know that we continue to wage war against you, know that your counter attacks only makes stronger. The UCC will start a new step in this war against you. . . .” and “We will release a list with over 8000 names, addresses, and email addresses, of those who fight against the US. Or live amongst the kuffar. Kill them wherever you find them!” In subsequent scenes, Video-2 contains what appears to be a graphic depiction of the decapitation of a kneeling man.
