NSA Hacked

The NSA was hacked for real — confirmed by Snowden documents

The Shadow Brokers dumped some private hacking tools and exploits, demanding 1 million bitcoin to release all the files. While the security experts and analysts were looking for some solid NSA connection, The Intercept has confirmed the same.

The Intercept found the references to the leaked exploits in its collection of documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Here’s an excerpt from the report:

NSA's hacking group hacked! bunch of private hacking tools leaked online

An unknown hacker or a group of hackers just claimed to have hacked into "Equation Group" -- a cyber-attack group allegedly associated with the United States intelligence organization NSA -- and dumped a bunch of its hacking tools (malware, private exploits, and hacking tools) online.
I know, it is really hard to believe, but some cybersecurity experts who have been examining the leak data, exploits and hacking tools, believe it to be legitimate.
