Hackers Failed Attempt To Sell Stolen NSA Hacking Tools

Hackers Failed Attempt To Sell Stolen NSA Hacking Tools

In August, a mysterious group known as the Shadow Brokers claimed to have obtained computer programs that are believed to be associated with the National Security Agency.

The Shadow Brokers posted snippets of the files online, which security experts determined were likely to belong to the Equation Group, a similarly mysterious hacking group. The group then tried to auction them off to the highest bidder, and said that if they received 1 million Bitcoin, they would release everything to the public.

They also went dark by dropping 61 new files online, many of which CyberScoop is calling outdated exploits against the Windows operating system.
