Shadow Brokers reveals list of Servers Hacked by the NSA

On my previous post I mentioned the Shadow Brokers.  The Shadow Brokers are a group of hackers that initially claimed to have stolen NSA surveillance tools.  Well today October 31, 2016 the Shadow Brokers published a list of foreign servers allegedly compromised by the NSA-linked hacking unit, Equation Group, in various countries to expand its espionage operations. Experts believe the list contains 306 domain names, and 352 IP addresses belonging to at least 49 countries. As many as 32 domains of the total were run by educational institutions in China and Taiwan.  The top 10 targeted countries include: China, Japan, Korea, Spain, Germany, India, Taiwan, Mexico, Italy , and last but certainly not least Russia.  The article also talks about other undisclosed tools that the Equation Group used.  To end this post I wanted to share a comment the Shadow Brokers made.

“TheShadowBrokers is having suggestion. On November 8th, instead of not voting, maybe be stopping the vote all together? Maybe being grinch who stopped the election from coming? Maybe hacking election is being the best idea? #hackelection2016.”
