It seems like the NSA has been HACKED!
An unknown hacker or a group of hackers just claimed to have hacked into "Equation Group" -- a cyber-attack group allegedly associated with the United States intelligence organization NSA -- and dumped a bunch of its hacking tools (malware, private exploits, and hacking tools) online.
I know, it is really hard to believe, but some cybersecurity experts who have been examining the leak data, exploits and hacking tools, believe it to be legitimate.
The files mostly contained installation scripts, configurations for command-and-control (C&C) servers, and exploits allegedly designed to target routers and firewalls from American manufacturers including, Cisco, Juniper, and Fortinet.
According to the leaked files, Chinese company 'Topsec' was also an Equation Group target.
The leak mentioned names of some of the hacking tools that correlate with names used in the documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden, like "BANANAGLEE" and "EPICBANANA."
"We follow Equation Group traffic," says the Shadow Broker. "We find Equation Group source range. We hack Equation Group. We find many many Equation Group cyber weapons. You see pictures. We give you some Equation Group files free, you see. This is good proof no? You enjoy!!! You break many things. You find many intrusions. You write many words. But not all, we are auction the best files."
It is yet not confirmed whether the leaked documents are legitimate or not, but some security experts agree that it likely is.
"I haven't tested the exploits, but they definitely look like legitimate exploits," Matt Suiche, founder of UAE-based cyber security firm Comae Technologies, told the Daily Dot.

Who knows....8 years of putting Muslims and other America haters into high places...
Snowden’s had the keys to the kingdom for a while and the NSA was either criminally negligent or disturbingly ignorant in changing the keys.
As a sysadmin, one of the first things we do when an admin leaves is to revoke every last key they had and change the master passwords to everything from our password databases to our voicemail passwords.
Or they have moles inside that are operational.
The NSA is the tool of the globalist elitists who slaver for the day they can spring a full on NAZI police state upon the US. They care nothing for democracy. Their purpose in life is to make the world safe for the international financier aristocracy and their debt slavery schematic. They are the controller faction behind the anti-Trumpistas in the GOP and are the enemy of free sentient Americans. Sit yourself down with strong drink and watch this video:
Then read Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and The Secret History of the American Empire.
Still some patriots inside? Amazing!
I think so, too. The NSA deliberately put in an "isolated" area on its own network so it becomes a "trap" for anyone trying to steal the information--whether through the regular Internet or even the so-called dark net.
