CNN  Though the legitimacy of the list is questionable, and much of the information it contains is outdated, the message claims to provide the phone numbers, locations, and “passwords” for 1400 American government and military personnel as well as purported credit card numbers, and excerpts of some Facebook chats.

“We are extracting confidential data,” the message says, “and passing on your personal information to the soldiers of the khilafah, who soon with the permission of Allah will strike at your necks in your own lands!” Several online terror trackers were unable to confirm whether the list actually came from ISIS. The FBI and Pentagon both say they are investigating.
