My article â€œShould spies use secret software vulnerabilities?â€ (https://theconversation.com/should-spies-use-secre… (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)) provides additional aspect of this breach. In April 2017, a hacking group called the Shadow Brokers reported that it had breached the network of, and stolen information from, computers used by the Equation Group, which has not identified itself but is widely believed to be part of the NSA. The Shadow Brokers revealed information about extremely sophisticated digital tools for attacking military, political and economic targets worldwide. One of those tools was â€œEternalBlue.â€
In May 2017, a hacker or hacking group released a piece of malicious software using â€œEternalBlueâ€ to hijack computers, encrypt the data on them and charge victims a ransom to restore access to their information.
