Legal protection for hackers fighting ISIS

As citizens in a free yet lawful society, we should make it clear to governments that hackers operating against ISIS, Al-Qaeda, or any other terrorist group are doing a societal good that protects us all. Hacking is still illegal.  Hacking should not be prosecuted for those fighting anti-society forces. It is done for the greater good. That should outweigh other concerns. It should be recognized as such and guarantees should be made on their behalf.
