What the actual reality is?

Instead of trying to shut down accounts and attack jihadi websites with distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, Ghost Security Group members operate more like spies than hackers. They monitor suspected IS Twitter accounts and infiltrate militant message boards to find information, which they say they then pass along to law enforcement.
