The US intelligence community reportedly negotiated in secret to retrieve classified documents stolen from the National Security Agency (NSA) by the Shadow Brokers and passed along to Russian intelligence.
NSA exploits stolen by hacker Shadow Brokers can be tweaked to exploit vulnerabilities in all versions of Windows, including Windows 10 - so deploy the MS17-010 security update from Microsoft as soon as possible.
Malwarebytes reports recent zero-days among Shadowbrokers hacking tools and code analysis appears to confirm earlier reported NSA origins.
TheShadowBrokers hackers are retiring but before they go, they are leaving behind a huge collection of Windows vulnerabilities - expect an uptick in opportunistic hacking.
The hacking group named The Shadow Brokers has released more NSA-related files, these are said to show IP addresses linked to the Equation Group, a hacking group believed to be an NSA contractor.
