Maybe the FBI is trying to get in touch with the hackers, expose for sale exploits the NSA.


As reported by SecurityLab, last week, hackers Shadow Brokers put up for sale exploits and tools for hacking, developed by the Equation Group – the group involved in the creation of malicious software for the national security Agency of the United States. Lot price is 1 million bitcoins (about 38 billion rubles.). According to information security expert krypt3ia, hackers are still far from the claimed amount, however some payments are still received.

According to the researcher, a few days ago at a bitcoin wallet Shadow Brokers was transferred a relatively small amount – about $990. It is noteworthy that the payment was made with bitcoin wallet of illegal trading site Silk Road, as you know, currently in the hands of the FBI.

As shown by further analysis, some translations were also made by the U.S. marshals Service. "Does this mean that coins are still the feds and used as bait? Maybe they're trying to enter the dialogue?", suggested krypt3ia. According to experts, this makes sense, given that part belonging to Silk Road bitcoin was stolen by some unscrupulous employees of the U.S. Secret service and the office for the fight against drugs.
