The French government is promising to hunt down hackers who knocked out channels belonging to a French TV station and posted material on its social media feeds.
In one message, the attackers, who say they are supporters of ISIL, protest against French military action in Iraq.
The government has described the cyber assault on TV5 Monde or TV5 World, as “vile and cowardly.”
“We are facing determined terrorists and we are determined to combat them. The means they use require us to adapt our approach permanently. And that’s what we are doing,” said Bernard Cazeneuve, French Interior Minister.
