In mid-April, a shadowy cybercrime group appropriately named the Shadow Brokers released an impressive collection of hacking tools used by the United States National Security Agency to conduct its espionage and cyber warfare operations around the world.
These Malware May Affect Local Apple Valley Businesses
The malware developed by the NSA was intended to target servers and workstations running various versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system, from XP to Windows 8 and from Windows Server 2003 to 2012. Additionally, a Lotus Domino exploit was included in the Shadow Brokers leak. Security analysts who looked at the tools determined that some were coded for the purpose of hacking into SWIFT banking systems around the world to monitor international wire transfer.
