While security researchers and companies go through the collection of hacking tools contained in the data dump that the Shadow Brokers failed to sell, Symantec has tied hacking tools from WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 documents to “Longhorn,” a cyber espionage group whose activity they have been following for years. The encrypted file containing the data was already available for download, but the group has now released the key required to decrypt it. For those of you who lost track, Shadow Brokers is the name given by an individual or group that has claimed to have hacked the Equation Group – a threat actor that has been linked with the US National Security Agency – and has previously leaked exploits and hacking tools.
