The ‘Equation Group,’ a hacker collective believed to be working on behalf of the NSA, has reportedly been hacked.
A group calling itself ‘The Shadow Brokers’ claims to have digitally infiltrated Equation Group, and are starting to dump its data online. So far, it seems like a bunch of code, but if Equation Group was working for the NSA — look out.
It was the only repo listed under the Shadow Broker’s profile.
In addition to selling data, Shadow Brokers were reportedly trying to sell the tools it used to hack Equation Group.
