Hacker Group Releases Password To NSA's "Top Secret Arsenal" In Protest Of Trump Betrayal

Tyler Durden's picture

Last August, the intel world was abuzz following the news that a previously unknown hacker collective, "The Shadow Brokers" had hacked and released legitimate hacking tools from the NSA's own special-ops entity, the "Equation Group", with initial speculation emerging that the Russians may have penetrated the US spy agency as suggested by none other than Edward Snowden. The Shadow Brokers released a bunch of the organization's hacking tools, and were asking for 1 million bitcoin (around $568 million at the time) to release more files, however failed to find a buyer.

Attention then shifted from Russians after some speculated that the agency itself may be housing another "mole" insider. At the time, a former NSA source told Motherboard, that “it’s plausible” that the leakers are actually a disgruntled insider, claiming that it’s easier to walk out of the NSA with a USB drive or a CD than hack its servers." As famed NSA whistleblower William Binney - who exposed the NSA's pervasive surveillance of Americans long before Snowden confirmed it - said, “My colleagues and I are fairly certain that this was no hack, or group for that matter, This ‘Shadow Brokers’ character is one guy, an insider employee."

In a subsequent Reuters op-ed by cybersecurity expert James Bamford, author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA From 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America, and columnist for Foreign Policy magazine, he said that seemed as the most probable explanation, and that Russia had nothing to do with this latest - and most provocative yet - hack.

Since then, the Shadow Broker group, whose origin and identity still remains a mystery, disappeared from the radar only to emerge today, when in an article posted on Medium, the group wrote an op-ed, much of it in broken English, in which it slammed Donald Trump's betrayal of his core "base", and the recent attack on Syria, urging Trump to revert to his original promises and not be swept away by globalist and MIC interests, but far more imporantly, released the password which grants access to what Edward Snowden moments ago called the NSA's "Top Secret arsenal of digital weapons."

The article begins with the group explaining why it is displeased with Trump.

Don’t Forget Your Base


Respectfully, what the fuck are you doing? TheShadowBrokers voted for you. TheShadowBrokers supports you. TheShadowBrokers is losing faith in you. Mr. Trump helping theshadowbrokers, helping you. Is appearing you are abandoning “your base”, “the movement”, and the peoples who getting you elected.


Good Evidence:


#1—Goldman Sach (TheGlobalists) and Military Industrial Intelligence Complex (MIIC) cabinet
#2—Backtracked on Obamacare
#3—Attacked the Freedom Causcus (TheMovement)
#4—Removed Bannon from the NSC
#5—Increased U.S. involvement in a foreign war (Syria Strike)


The peoples whose voted for you, voted against the Republican Party, the party that tried to destroying your character in the primaries. The peoples who voted for you, voted against the Democrat Party, the party that hates, mocks, and laughs at you. Without the support of the peoples who voted for you, what do you think will be happening to your Presidency? Without the support of the people who voted for you, do you think you’ll be still making America great again? Do you be remembering when you were sitting there at the Obama Press Party and they were all laughing at you? Do you be remembering when you touring the country and all those peoples believed in you and supported you? You were those peoples hope. How do you be thinking it will be feeling when those people turn on you? Will they be laughing at you, hating you, and mocking you too?


TheShadowBrokers doesn’t want this to be happening to you, Mr. Trump. TheShadowBrokers is wanting to see you succeed.

The hackers then ask Trump whose war is he fighting:

 If you made deal(s) be telling the peoples about them, peoples is appreciating transparency. But what kind of deal can be resulting in chemical weapons used in Syria, Mr. Bannon’s removal from the NSC, US military strike on Syria, and successful vote for SCOTUS without change rules? Mr. Trump whose war are you fighting? Israeli Nationalists’ (Zionist) and Goldman Sachs’ war? Chinese Globalists’ and Goldman Sachs war? Is not looking like you fighting the domestic wars, the movement elected you to be fighting. You not being in office three months and already you looking like the MIIC’s bitch with John McCain and Chuck Schumer double dutch ruddering each other in the corner over dead corpses.

The post continues by exposing what the ShadowBrokers believe is the general mindset of Trump's support base:

Your Supporters:

  • Don’t care what is written in the NYT, Washington Post, or any newspaper, so just ignore it.
  • Don’t care if you swapped wives with Mr Putin, double down on it, “Putin is not just my firend he is my BFF”.
  • Don’t care if the election was hacked or rigged, celebrate it “so what if I did, what are you going to do about it”.
  • Don’t care if your popular or nice, get er done, Obama’s fail, thinking he could create compromise. No compromise.
  • Don’t want foreign wars, Do want domestic wars, “drain the swamp”, “destroy the nanny state”
  • Don’t care about your faith, you sound like a smuck when you try to say god things
  • DO support the ideologies and policies of Steve Bannon, Anti-Globalism, Anti-Socialism, Nationalism, Isolationism

In the article, the ShadowBrokers also touch upon what until recently was the primary topic of the daily news cycle, namely the whether Russia is behind this (and any other black hat intel hacking operation):

For peoples still being confused about TheShadowBrokers and Russia. If theshadowbrokers being Russian don’t you think we’d be in all those U.S. government reports on Russian hacking? TheShadowBrokers isn’t not fans of Russia or Putin but “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” We recognize Americans’ having more in common with Russians than Chinese or Globalist or Socialist. Russia and Putin are nationalist and enemies of the Globalist, examples: NATO encroachment and Ukraine conflict. Therefore Russia and Putin are being best allies until the common enemies are defeated and America is great again.

The report than goes on to suggest that the hacking group is in fact comprised mostly of former US spies: "President Trump, theshadowbrokers is offering our services to you and your administration. Did you know most of theshadowbrokers’ members have taken the oath “…to protect and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic…”. Yes sir! Most of us used to be TheDeepState everyone is talking about."

Then something changed, and the collective notes that "TheDeepState is being the enemy of the constitution, individualism, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. With the right funding we can recruit some of the best hacker intel peoples in United States and world. “Unmasking” is being new buzz word, so we use. TheShadowBrokers is being happy to unmask anyone we considering to be an enemy of the Constitution of the United States."

Enemies like John McCain. Something doesn’t rub theshadowbrokers rite about Vietnam War POW who at every opportunity seeks to do violence to others via the proxy of young service men and women. If anyone should be being pacifist, slow to pick fight it should be being former POW. TheShadowBrokers is sure if we “unmasking”, Senator McCain, Magog itself might come out, many defense contractors, Saudi Princes, and possibly little Vietnamese boy he shares with Senator Lindsey Graham, not cool! Mr. Trump we know you are having DOJ and FBI, so why you be needing theShadowBrokers? You don’t, but theshadowbrokers is confused. Why haven’t you served search warrant to NYT, Washington Post, Goldman Sacks, Jeff Bezos, and all other Globalist for investigation and prosecution of treason, sedition, and un-American activities during a time of war? The

It was the conclusion to the post, however, that was most interesting - in it the Shadow Brokers urges Trump to be the "real deal" and has released the password to the NSA hacking tool binaries that made so much news last summer:

Mr. President Trump theshadowbrokers sincerely is hoping you are being the real deal and that you received this as constructive criticism toward #MAGA. Some American’s consider or maybe considering TheShadowBrokers traitors. We disagreeing. We view this as keeping our oath to protect and defend against enemies foreign and domestic. TheShadowBrokers wishes we could be doing more, but revolutions/civil wars taking money, time, and people. TheShadowBrokers has is having little of each as our auction was an apparent failure. Be considering this our form of protest. The password for the EQGRP-Auction-Files is CrDj”(;Va.*NdlnzB9M?@K2)#>deB7mN

Shortly after the blog post hit, Wikileaks noticed:

Even Edward Snowden got involved


As per Wikileaks, the released information include "browsable decrypted Shadow Brokers "NSA" hacking tools+docs files corresponding to password released today", and that "Hundreds of NSA cyber weapons variants publicly released including code showing hacking of Pakistan mobile system"

The github depository of the released code can be found here.

Other hackers organizations confirm, the key released by the ShadowBrokers has been verified:

Inside the NSA dump among many other findings, we find hundreds of NSA attacks on China, as well as penetration attempts in which the NSA "pretends" to be China so one wonders how difficult it would be for the NSA to pretend they are, oh, say Russia?

Additionally, today's revelation exposes hacking attacks on EU states, as well as Latin America, Russia, China, Japan and South East Asia.  Among the contents one also finds the hacking configuration for China Mobile, the world's largest mobile telecom company by number of subscribers (just under 900 million) and market cap.

Another example shows the NSA's EquationGroup tool (ELECTRICSLIDE) impersonating a Chinese browser with fake Accept-Language.

We are in the process of further exploring the disclosed data, and will present any notable revelations in due course, however we find it quite interesting that now that the "rogue" element in the intel community appears to have given up on Trump, they are bypassing the president and taking their war with the "deep state" directly to the people.

Finally, a rhetorical question from Julian Assange on today's revelations:

I voted for Trump.

I did not vote for his jew son in law, or his jew daughter; both of whom have leftist leanings.

I now believe I am the unwitting victim of a Trump con.

I do not give a shit if they impeach or imprison him.

Just one more war criminal in the white house.

Too bad.

I agree,  Don't feel bad , for the PTB own both horses in a two horse race.  What choice did We have? I am thinking that We elected Hillary in drag. Grandpappy was right when he said you waste your time voting.

Great piece here, Tylers. I didn't even know about this group. Fascinating stuff, thanks.

Mr. "limited hangout" Snowden always seems to be one step ahead of the game, as if he is the narrator.


Raise your hand if you believe Snowden is still on the company payroll.

Snowden may not even be a real person and if he is he is surely a limited hangout.

Snowden is a NOC. Well known in some circles, but not around here.

The writer of the article doesn't appear to speak English as a primary language....

So, are these so-called Trump Supporters even registered to vote in the USA?

Blanco Diablo's picture

When I voted for Trump I was not voting to supply firepower to cover the Jihadi. I sure as hell did not vote for the resident mossad agent Kushner.

lakecity55's picture

Kushner only answers  to his masters in Tel Aviv. Not Trump and not to US.


TheLastTrump's picture

How many of you posters are sock puppets, BTW?


How many of you are being paid?


messystateofaffairs's picture

Kushner was a known, the strong Jewish family and business connections were knowns, and there were many anomalies in his narrative, which itself was always vague. The warnings were there but Trump was the best choice to take a gamble on. That gamble failed, its time to start searching for alternatives.

TheLastTrump's picture

Boo hoo, I voted for a man to become president but then he


went and did something I didn't personally approve of.


I take all my support back. I'm taking my ball & going home. Wahhhhh my pussy hurts wahhhhh.

I think that's just a way to hide their identity.  Foreigners don't talk like that.

I'm thinking whoever wrote it that way did it intentionally to mask speech style or keystroke match programs he knows the NSA have to detect who the leaker is.

Faeriedust's picture

Yes.  It doesn't match the grammatical errors typical of either Russians or Chinese, or even the Nigerians.  I suspect it was run through several iterations of machine translation into foreign languages and then back to English.

You dual citizens have the advantage against real American Citizens.

Everybody in the world who seeks truth and freedom was a Trump supporter, what does speaking English have to do with that?

No shit lol.


Sorry, the thread meme doesn't recognise your comment as one of the pre approved troll memes, perhaps you were posting on the wrong thread?

The world has awakened, and the puppeteers the world over are nervous. 

Paul Morphy's picture

If the plan is to break the Trump support base, the American attack on Syria has achieved that split.

Trump won't reap any democratic party voters, and he's going to lose some anti-democratic / anti-republican party voters.


I'm not convinced about the speel that the attack was sending a message to China/Korea. That speel is spin.

Trump is going to have to do something radical to re-capture his voting base, because if the reaction to the Syrian attack is an barometer, he's leaking support left right and centre.



Blanco Diablo's picture

You hit the nail on the head, I WAS a Trump supporter, but his actions starting with dumping Flynn destroyed my illusions.

FrankDrakman's picture

What a bunch of impatient fucks you both are. Not even 90 days, and you write him off as useless, even though he's had an unprecedented fight against the courts, the media, and his own damn party. 

Now we have the Supreme Court set up, Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight, and Trump is crawling out from under the "Putin puppet" bullshit. Even if his travel bans were shot down by useless puny judges, the effect is there - thousands fewer people coming from those countries. Quotations for the wall are coming in. I'll bet they break ground this year. 

He's accomplished some important things in less than three months. Give the man a chance. 

TheLastTrump's picture

Trolls. Shills. Sock puppet accounts. Russian/ Syrian cock gobbling. What could go wrong?

Berspankme's picture

So far he has done nothing but fuck up. On healthcare, obama lite. No tax reform. Questionable loyalty(flynn). No indictments on the swamp creatures. Soft on obama stealing taxpayer monies at fannie mae and giving to activists. And now this. Next we wont be building the wall.

Somebody either has him by the nutsack or he is a goddamned phony

I'll take "Presidents with their Nuts in a Vice" for $800, Alex.

I'm still cautiously optimistic. Even cowards can become heroes when the need is greatest.

This is simply a case of the shrewd business guy who said 'screw it", ran for president, knew EXACTLY how to sell it to even the most mouthiest-breathing of voters and ( against impossible odds ) actually won.

He got in over his head in the most "bigly" imaginable way. He's literally surrounded by his own potential assassins. It may not even be like the JFK head-explody way either. Maybe they've got something on him and may just be blackmailing him with character-assassination...either way: Nuts in a Vice.

I'm of the opinion Syria was but a tool in Trump's sending a message (timing here)... to China. Corral your dog (NK), or we will. His attack on Syria was no betrayal. As Trump has said, you do not inform your enemiy of your intention. Putin was informed prior to the attack. Putin informed Syria. Trump also signaled he is no Obama.

I also read that Syria had done an airstrike on munitions which unfortunately contained the chem. High winds were present and the gas was blown into the town. It was not a purposeful strike on civilians. Plausible? Don't know, given our media.

Agreed... he just used it as an excuse to put on a flashy show to impress Ching Chang Wong or whatever the fuck his name is. The bonus is he turned a lot of heads and sentiment in the US.

That said, we shouldn't be supporting McCain's terrorists any more than we should be supporting Hillary's terrorists. They're all fucking terrorists. We should be slaughtering them, not supporting them.

Hear now the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating in your world. They will suck your energy from you - the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends and give you worthless dross in return. Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you and you will lead yourselves onto the path of evolution.
