Hacking group offers subscription for NSA code

19 May 2017

The group teased more details would come out next month. The group said that the data would be locked behind a subscription fee, but, beyond that, they do not care who buys the data or for what goal it is used.

The announcement comes on the heels of a very virulent ransomware outbreak that has used one of the exploits previously leaked by the group.

The US government said it seized 50 terabytes of confidential data from Martin's home which was stolen from the NSA and other intelligence agencies.

The group is clearly emboldened by its success (if you want to call it that), after releasing numerous zero-day exploits acquired from the NSA's Equation Group, after they were left on a staging server. Windows 10, web browser and router exploits along with "compromised network data from more SWIFT providers and Central banks" are among the items that might be offered through the "dump of the month" service.

Kushner Hands-on Broker of $110B Saudi Arms Deal
Kushner has been heavily involved in the preparations for President Trump's trip, especially the Saudi stop. Officials said Hewson responded by saying she would look in to it, the report also said.

In its Tuesday blog post, the group expressed its surprise that governments or tech companies didn't bid in its past auctions.

Shadow Brokers, the group that claimed responsibility for leaking NSA cyber spying tools that included that ones used in WannaCry global ransomware attack, has warned it will sell codes that can be used to hack the most used computers, software and phones.

The group also promised to include compromised financial data from the SWIFT worldwide payment order system, used by banks to transfer trillions of dollars each day, as well as confidential data from several central banks.

Although nobody knows who the Shadow Brokers are, various theories point to either a disgruntled insider or a group with ties to Russian Federation.

Destiny 2 Will Launch On Blizzard App On PC
The Titan is now equipped with his Sentinel, the Warlock is armed with the Dawnblade, and the Hunter will wield the Arcstrider. When is Destiny 2 coming out? The game is scheduled to release on September 8, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

While some of the exploits in the possession of the Shadow Brokers have already been patched, the rapid spread of WannaCry underscores how many individuals and institutions are still running laughably outdated software.

"The Equation Group are our nation's top hackers", he says, referring to the group which Shadow Brokers claims to have pilfered a stockpile of exploits and tools. Keep in mind that the paid subscribers could range from anywhere between journalists and ethical hackers to criminals, state-affiliate security organizations and the malevolent ones who tend to exploit the globe with these valuable assets. TheShadowBrokers is not being interested in stealing grandmothers' retirement money.

It further said, "If a responsible party buys all lost data before it is sold, then Shadow Brokers will have no more financial incentives to be taking continued risks of operation and will go dark permanently".

"TheShadowBrokers is launching new monthly subscription model", it explained.

Higher inflation blamed on air fares
The rising rate is caused by falling value of the British currency following the last year's Brexit vote, according to the ONS. The Consumer Price Index, which measures inflation, reached 2.7 per cent in April, from 2.3 per cent in March.

According to the Shadow Brokers, Microsoft proceeded to cancel February's Patch Tuesday so they could work on the patches the company delivered in March.
