At least 74 countries affected in 'biggest ever' cyberattack
The group responsible for the release of the National Security Agency (NSA) code used in the WannaCry ransomware attack has said it will open a member's club for those wanting access to similar tools.
In the same jibberish rant, it has also been mentioned that the hacker group is now planning to follow a monthly data dump cycle.
The Shadow Brokers said they'll release more details about their monthly data dump in June, including how interested subscribers could sign up. According to them, the list includes "web browser, router, handset exploits and tools, exploits for Windows 10, compromised network data from more SWIFT providers and Central banks".
It also threatened to dump data from banks using the SWIFT global money transfer network and from Russian, Chinese, Iranian or North Korean nuclear and missile programs, without providing further details.
At least not until the Shadow Brokers released screenshots of the Equation Group's stolen "2013 Windows Ops Disk".
The announcement comes on the heels of a very virulent ransomware outbreak that has used one of the exploits previously leaked by the group.
Shadow Brokers first emerged last August, offering to auction hacking exploits it said were used by the NSA's elite hacking team known as Equation Group (officially named Tailored Access Operations).
But now, the monthly subscription model might mean the bugs will find their way into the hands of more people, said Mr Hall.
During the more than five years the NSA used EternalBlue's extraordinary powers to extract secrets from targeted computers, the Washington Post reported, some officials discussed whether the flaw was so unsafe they should reveal it to Microsoft. They released NSA's hacking tools which was the main reason behind those attacks.
The group goes on to claim that it has spies inside Microsoft among other United States technology companies and says it plans to sell off new exploits every month from June onwards.
Its warning allowed Microsoft to fix the issue with a patch that was issued in March, weeks before The Shadow Brokers leaked EternalBlue online.
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.
They were easy to be exploited because they were not getting regular security patches from Microsoft automatically. "Microsoft has been critical of the U.S. government over this stockpiling of vulnerability code, and said this was equivalent to the government losing it stock of 'Tomahawk missiles".
