NSA Hacked - Leaked Information Auctioned At 1 Million Bitcoin

We have yet to determine whether this is legitimate or not, however many of the Alternative News Networks are now stating it to be confirmed and legit:

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 organisation 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 cyber security experts who have been examining the leak data, exploits and hacking tools, believe it to be legitimate.

Hacker Demands $568 Million in Bitcoin to Leak All Tools and Data

Not just this, the hackers, calling themselves “The Shadow Brokers,” are also asking for 1 Million Bitcoins (around $568 Million) in an auction to release the ‘best’ cyber weapons and more files.  – The Hacker News

And in the last couple hours even the Mainstream Media are picking up the same story with the general consensus that this is genuine, from the Wall Street Journal:

Evidence is mounting that a mysterious hacking group claiming to have stolen data from a spying operation linked to the National Security Agency is telling the truth.

Security vendor Kaspersky Labs ZAO, which first identified the NSA-linked operation last year, said files released in the latest hack use an unusual mathematical approach it had seen in that operation’s code. Kaspersky dubbed the operation the Equation Group, and said it appeared to be supporting U.S. interests in cyberspace.

The new files were released last weekend by a hacking group calling itself the Shadow Brokers, which claims to have a bigger cache of files it is offering to sell, They appear to be attack code that targets security software on routers that direct computer traffic around the internet.

“This code similarity makes us believe with a high degree of confidence that the tools from the Shadow Brokers leak are related to the malware from the Equation Group,” Kaspersky said in a blog post.

Two former NSA employees said the code published by the Shadow Brokers looked authentic.

Security analysts, meanwhile, said several attacks that appear in the files can in fact alter how internet routers handle certain traffic.
