Hackers Threaten to Dump Insurance Files Related to 9/11 Attacks. Think they have it? Think they’ll pay? We say yes to both.

On Monday, New Year’s Eve, a hacker group announced it had breached a law firm handling cases related to the September 11 attacks, and threatened to publicly release a large cache of related internal files unless their ransom demands were met.

The news is the latest public extortion attempt from the group known as The Dark Overlord, which has previously targeted a production studio working for Netflix, as well as a host of medical centres and private businesses across the United States. The announcement also signals a slight evolution in The Dark Overlord’s strategy, which has expanded on leveraging the media to exert pressure on victims, to now distributing its threats and stolen data in a wider fashion.

If they are that damning, drop them. We have the right to know!

The firm will pay and there will still be a data dump. Just to prove that they have the ability to get to “your stuff”
