More bugs may be released: Hacking group


The Shadow Brokers was responsible for leaking EternalBlue, the Windows SMB exploit that was used by attackers in recent days to infect hundreds of thousands of computers around the world with the WannaCry ransomware program.

The group first appeared online in August and claimed that it had access to the arsenal of a cyberespionage group known in the security industry as the Equation, widely believed to be a hacking division of the NSA. The information is supposed to include data stolen from SWIFT providers and central banks and data from "Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or North Korean nukes and missile programs".

"It's being like wine of month club", said the blog post, which is written in broken English.

The ransomware Attack was because of the existing Windows XP systems throughout the world which had been announced unsupported by Microsoft after 2014. Each month peoples can be paying membership fee, then getting members only data dump each month.

"ShadowBrokers are back" tweeted Matthieu Suiche, a French hacker and security researcher who has tracked the group.

The hacking group said it would release tools to subscribers each month or would "go dark permanently" if the "responsible party" bought all the tools for a lump sum, suggesting that the Shadow Brokers could be willing to hand over stolen hacking tools to the NSA for a price. But the naming of Windows 10 specifically will undoubtedly set Microsoft, its partners and corporations using the latest version of Windows, which until now has been unaffected by WannaCry, on edge.

The WannaCry attack stoked fears that the spy agency's powerful cyber weapons could now be turned to criminal use, ratcheting up cyber security threats to a new level.

Starting in 2016, Shadow Brokers has been leaking hacking tools linked to the NSA online.

"Because simply by threatening another leak after leaking two sets of Microsoft exploits, Shadow Brokers will ratchet up the hostility between Microsoft and the government".

A group of hackers that previously leaked alleged U.S. National Security Agency exploits claims to have even more attack tools in its possession and plans to release them in a new subscription-based service.

Shadow Brokers directly attacks Microsoft exec Brad Smith, whose name was on the company's statement, calling him a "scumbag" and questioning his company's links to the NSA.
