The Dark hacker group has endangered to show many of the ‘secret’ documents taken from underwriters and administration activities that they claim disclose the fact about 9/11 – if they’re paid not to. The Dark Overlord, an expert confrontational danger group called for drudges of Netflix, plastic surgery clinics, and additional subtle boards, posted a link to a 10GB encrypted documentation of documents connected to 9/11 lawsuit, capable to release the encryption keys if their stresses were not met in a post on Pastebin. Hackers threatened to release “hundreds of gigabytes of litigation-related documents” about the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

The set of claims the leaflets tell the story of what really occurred on one of the most infamous dates in new history, stating that “We’ll be providing many answers about 9.11 conspiracies through our 18,000 secret documents leak.” They published a “teaser” consisting of letters, emails, and various documents that mention law firms, the Transport Security Administration, and the Federal Aviation Administration, with a promise of more to come. People are being sent dismaying emails threatening to post a video of their most close seconds on the internet. What’s more, the mails are outrageously credible: they seem to comprise secret info in regards to the receiver that proposes the intimidations are real.

But in fact, the messages are a scam. And they seem to be trusted on the massive number of stolen passwords that are available across the internet. The group said they were putting the documents up for auction.

“If you’re a terrorist organization such as ISIS/ISIL, Al-Qaeda, or a competing nation-state of the USA such as China or Russia, you’re welcome to purchase our trove of documents,” they said. “What we’ll be releasing is the truth. The truth about one of the most recognizable incidents in recent history and one which is shrouded in mystery with little transparency and not many answers.” Firstly, it’s nobody’s business what they make. More to the point, all American also is my speaker bureau and included in the cache of documents the company exposed in the cloud were some of my speaking contracts. In fact, when Troia called about his find, I was on my way home from one such engagement.

I quickly informed my contact at All American and asked them to let me know the moment they confirmed the data was removed from the Internet. While awaiting that confirmation, my pent-up frustration seeped into a tweet that seemed to touch a raw nerve among others in the security industry.

The Dark Overlord’s method was roughly the same in each attack. Gain access to sensitive data (often by purchasing access through crimeware-as-a-service offerings), and send a long, rambling ransom note to the victim organization demanding tens of thousands of dollars in Bitcoin for the safe return of said data.
