They even advertise a new paid monthly subscription model. How nice.

Infosecurity Magazine reports:

Russia-linked hacking group The Shadow Brokers has warned of a new release of exploits next month, in an update which will likely cause sweaty palms at the NSA.

In a new missive written as usual in comically bad English, the group claimed to have possession of “75% of U.S. cyber arsenal” stolen from the NSA-linked Equation Group.

After a long ramble about WannaCry and Microsoft, in which it blamed North Korea for the global attack, the group said that next month it would announce "TheShadowBrokers Data Dump of the Month."

“TheShadowBrokers is launching new monthly subscription model,” it explained. “Is being like wine of month club. Each month peoples can be paying membership fee, then getting members only data dump each month. What members doing with data after is up to members.”
