Hackers Release ‘NSA Malware’

Posted 10 April 2017 22:39 CEST by Wombler

Hacking group Shadow Brokers has released malware allegedly written by the US National Security Agency (NSA).

Shadow Brokers is a group of unknown hackers who trade in information, having specialised up until now in exploiting vulnerabilities in Microsoft products, anti virus software, and enterprise grade firewalls.

The group reportedly released a password last weekend to an encrypted cache of hacker tools that they had previously tried to sell online, allegedly as protest gesture against the policies of the current US President Donald Trump. The alleged ‘NSA’ malware was found to be contained within this encrypted cache.

The NSA has as yet refused to comment however sources believe the malware to be “real, but old”.
