“The National Security Agency, the US’s largest and most secretive intelligence agency, has been hacked, robbed [sic], mocked, and deeply infiltrated by anonymous hackers, according to a new New York Times expose. Essentially, the NSA, which compiles massive troves of data on US citizens and organizes cyber offensives against the US’s enemies, was deeply breached by a group known as the ‘Shadow Brokers.’ Those brokers now post cryptic, mocking messages pointed towards the NSA as they sell the cyber weapons, created at huge cost to US taxpayers, to any and all buyers, including the US’s enemies like North Korea and Russia.” [editor’s note: The cyber weapons were likely copied, not stolen. The NSA presumably still has them, unfortunately – TLK] (11/13/17)
