The Shadow Brokers, hacker or hacker group which got publicity last year by hacking, releasing and then tried to get an extra bite selling it have given a call for “Quit”. This is the recent message from this famous group.
This is an outcome of “The Shadow Brokers” advertisement of hacking tools especially for windows systems. Apparently no one took this offer.
““So long, farewell peoples. TheShadowBrokers is going dark, making exit. Continuing is being much risk and bullshit, not many bitcoins. TheShadowBrokers is deleting accounts and moving on so don’t be trying communications,” a message posted on a site that the group has previously used reads.”
“The Shadow brokers” name became popular in last august “Hackers Say They Hacked NSA-Linked Group, Want 1 Million Bitcoins to Share More“
“The Shadow Broker” followed auction and crowd-funding approaches which is quite against general flow of post hacking breaches. This approach didn’t went successful, bidders sent only &7800 bitcoins which is far less than the bitcoins which they asked 10,000 bitcoins.
“The Shadow Brokers” still claims that this hack was for financial profit, some security researchers have speculated that its connection with Russian government cannot be ignored.
