Cyber Caliphate is the hacking wing of Islamic State (IS) which is thought to be responsible for a recent hack of the US Central Command's Twitter and You Tube accounts.
The link to Islamic State is tenuous and is likely just a marketing ploy used by Lizard Squad to get more coverage by the media, thereby raising the profile of its hacking tool.
The Lizard Squad Twitter account (which has now been suspended) was created in August 2011, meaning it is highly unlikely that it is linked to a movement that begun in April 2013.
Since the attacks on PSN and Xbox Live in December, authorities in the US and UK have been carrying out a major investigation resulting in several arrests in the UK in recent weeks.
Lizard Squad is a group of up to 15 hackers which is gaining notoriety for attacking major companies like Sony, Microsoft and Facebook in order to publicise its hacking tool known as Lizard Stresser.
The group is gaining increasing notoriety in 2015 as it claims credit for an increasingly high-profile list of attacks on major online targets including the Play Station Network and even Facebook.
Here we look at the group, their attacks, the service they are selling and whether or not they are really linked to Islamic State: Ever since the group began carrying out attacks last August, the group has consistently mentioned Islamic State during its attacks.
In August, the media's interest was piqued by apparent claims that Lizard Squad had taken down the Play Station Network in the name of the Islamic State, claiming that "Kuffar [non-muslims] don't get to play videogames until bombing of the ISIL stops."The account went on to say: Things escalated even further when a single tweet from the account led to an American Airlines flight carrying the president of Sony Online Entertainment, John Smedley, to be diverted following a bomb threat: In January, when the group knocked the website of Malaysia Airlines offline, it initially replaced the homepage with a holding page claiming it was "Hacked by Cyber Caliphate" and encouraged visitors to follow the group on Twitter.
