NSA hacked? Top cyber weapons allegedly go up for auction
An anonymous group claims to have stolen hacking tools that might belong to the National Security Agency and is auctioning them off to the highest bidder.
It’s a pretty bold claim, but the hackers have offered sample files, and some security researchers say they appear to contain legitimate exploits.
The files were allegedly stolen from the Equation Group, a top cyberespionage team that may have links to the NSA.
The Equation Group is known to use some of the most advanced malware and probably helped develop the infamous Stuxnet computer worm, according to security firm Kaspersky Lab.
