'Shadow Brokers' threaten to release more hacking tools in June

'Shadow Brokers' threaten to release more hacking tools in June

Most troubling was the fact that hospitals often used older machines running outdated operating systems, which were left open to the WannaCry exploit.

The hackers have not offered proof that they possess any more data, but have alleged that their collection includes Windows 10 exploits, banking information, and "compromised network data from Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or North Korean nukes and missile programs".

In June, TheShadowBrokers is announcing "TheShadowBrokers Data Dump of the Month" service.

In a blog post written in its trademark broken English, the group said it has more so-called Ops Disks, which it says were also stolen from the NSA.

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. Of course, anything the Shadow Brokers say should be taken with full shaker of salt. TheShadowBrokers is launching new monthly subscription model. The post indicated those who are willing can pay a monthly membership fee and how members will use the data they purchase would be up to them.

In the Shadow Broker's latest posting, they have threatened to release even more tools in June. What members doing with data after is up to members.

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 ShadowBrokers originally tried to auction the NSA hacking tools that they claimed were from the Equation Group, a hacker group tied to the NSA.

The Shadow Brokers said that unless a "responsible party" bought the entire cache, it would sell other tools and data stolen from the National Security Agency (NSA) "like a wine of the month club", starting next month.

That attempt was also doomed, and after failing to secure buyers for the remainder of the tools they teased, the group dumped online the August 2016 password-protected archive last month in April.

The NSA has not commented on Shadow Brokers since the group emerged previous year, or the contents of past leaks. Microsoft had actually made a patch for this WannaCry vulnerability in March 2017 and rolled it to users but not many installed it.

It also caused a public statement from Microsoft attacking the USA government for stockpiling software exploits, arguing: "An equivalent scenario with conventional weapons would be the U.S. military having some of its Tomahawk missiles stolen". However, as researcher Marcy Wheeler points out, simply threatening these leaks can strain relationships between Microsoft and the USA government, which may be the real aim.
