The Dark Overlord, an international hacker group, have announced that they have stolen a trove of undisclosed information regarding the 9/11 attacks — and they are ready to release it unless they do not receive ransom money, denominated in Bitcoins.
The group, infamously known for leaking, in 2017, episodes of the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black, say that they have hacked an unnamed US-based law firm. When looking through the stolen cache of data, they found “hundreds of gigabytes of litigation-related documents”, including a total of 18,000 e-mails, non-disclosure agreements, expert witness testimonies, and communications with government officials.
The hacked law firm is said to have paid a “satisfactory” amount of money to the Dark Overlord but also contacted law enforcement officials — a move that drew the hackers’ ire.
Interesting if true.
