New Shadow Brokers Message Teases Data From Nuke Programs, Windows 10 Exploits


The group is also promising that June will be the data dump month.

In the same jibberish rant, it has also been mentioned that the hacker group is now planning to follow a monthly data dump cycle.

This isn't the first time the group has attempted to sell its exploits and cyber-weaponry.

Shadow Brokers' new claim that it possesses information on the nuclear programmes of state governments is extremely worrisome, said Mr Joseph Lorenzo Hall, chief technologist for Washington think-tank Centre for Democracy and Technology. It also hinted that the blame for the WannaCry outbreak should go to Microsoft and the US government.

The shadowy hacking group claimed that Microsoft released its vulnerability patch in March while also alleging that the Equation Group was paying U.S. tech companies not to patch vulnerabilities. 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.

He said: "Of course not, I think to suggest that is to give credence to some of these weird rumours that have swirled around the candidacy".

In a convoluted post on Steemit.com and shared on the mysterious group's Twitter account, Shadow Brokers says it has more exploits and attack tools in its possession.

Shadow broker the hacking group which was behind the last week's Wannacry Ransomware attacks in the world.

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. Now, it's considering a new subscription model in which it releases new hacking tools to subscribers every month.

The comments from the Shadow Brokers arrived just five days after WannaCry crippled businesses and organizations across the world, infecting at least 200,000 endpoints with file-encrypting malware (see WannaCry Ransomware Outbreak Spreads Worldwide). The bad news is that the hacking collecting responsible for releasing the exploit upon which the WannaCry ransomware is based on is planning to release more Windows exploits and hacking tools to anyone willing to pay.

Careful analysis of the Shadow Brokers' previous data dumps has left little doubt that the group somehow gained access to troves of sensitive US government information.

Ransomware cyber attack 'likely to spread rapidly on Monday'
There is still no evidence any of our hospital systems were affected and we are completely confident no patient data was involved. Large swathes of the NHS have been paralysed by the cyber attack, which hit 200,000 victims in 150 countries around the world.

The hacker group started off by mocking the security practices of TheEquationGroup (read as NSA).

"TheShadowBrokers is not being interested in stealing grandmothers' retirement money", the group writes in its awkward English.

Shadow Brokers announced on their blog that they will be releasing more of the stolen data monthly, comparing this "data dump service" to "wine of the month club" for hackers. Microsoft president and chief legal officer Brad Smith said earlier this week the WannaCry attack used elements stolen from NSA cyber warfare operations.

They were easy to be exploited because they were not getting regular security patches from Microsoft automatically.

Companies can also install white listing software that prevents the downloading of unauthorized computer software. Hackers then demanded a $300 ransom (double that after 72 hours) to unlock the device and all saved files.
