NSA, Unit 8200, and Malware Proliferation

NSA, Unit 8200, and Malware Proliferation – Medium – The archive of data provided by Shadowbrokers has been confirmed as genuine by two sources: Kaspersky Lab researchers who compared it to their collection of Equation Group malware and The Intercept, who referenced it against heretofore undisclosed NSA files provided to them by Edward Snowden. This unprecedented discovery marks the first time in history that a national intelligence service‘s cyber operations including targets and malware have been so definitively exposed. Unfortunately, it wasn’t China’s Ministry of State Security or Russia’s Federal Security Service that this has happened to. It was the United States’ National Security Agency (NSA).
