Hackers who are definitely not Russian stooges slam Trump after he attacks Russian ally
Back in August, when Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were still fighting for the presidency, a hacking group called the Shadow Agents exhausted confidential NSA hacking tools.
At the time they claimed they weren’t working with the Russian authority. Now that demand inspections, well, ridiculous.
Here’s what they said on Saturday, shortly after Donald Trump bombarded Syria, a Russian ally.
Respectfully, what the fuck are you doing? ” they wrote on Medium.
They persisted (< em> sic everywhere, obviously ):
“TheShadowBrokers voted for you. TheShadowBrokers patronage you. TheShadowBrokers is losing religion in you … Is sounding you are abandoning ‘your base’, ‘the movement’, and the peoples of the territories who getting you elected.”
“Respectfully, what the fuck are you doing? “

That comical price tag, along with the edification of the hack, acquired it seem like these weren’t genuinely crybercriminals looking to make a horse, but instead Putin stooges with bad grammar.
The group adjourned a few weeks before Trump became chairwoman, releasing more NSA system as a “final fuck you.”
Now they’ve come back from retirement, the same week Trump bombarded Syria. The Kremlin, along with Iran, backs Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The U.S. backs some Syrian mavericks, but not all of them. It’s all very complicated.
Anyway , now the Shadow Dealer have exhausted the encrypted records for free, which stimulates the whole hackers-for-money thought seem very unlikely.
They’ve even offered to hack Sen. John McCain for supporting the missile strike.
And while they claim they’re not Russian, they do have a sense for the president. On Medium, they claimed that Trump’s adherents 😛 TAGEND
