The Shadow Brokers, fresh off its enabling of the WannaCry ransomware, is teasing many more exploits, including some that might end in the nuclear-heat death of the human race. The information is supposed to include data stolen from SWIFT providers and central banks and data from "Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or North Korean nukes and missile programs". The group proposed a "monthly subscription model" for dumps, beginning in June - despite the fact that earlier plans to auction the vulnerabilities didn't pan out.
Shadow Brokers, the group that claimed responsibility for leaking NSA cyber spying tools that included that ones used in WannaCry global ransomware attack, has warned it will sell codes that can be used to hack the most used computers, software and phones. But if the subscription service launches in June as stated, he expects there will be subscribers. "Is being like wine of month club", its post states; Blue Apron for malware. The post indicated those who are willing can pay a monthly membership fee and how members will use the data they purchase would be up to them. "ShadowBrokers are back", tweeted Matthieu Suiche, a French hacker and founder of the United Arab Emirates-based cyber security firm Comae Technologies, who has studied the Shadow Broker releases and believes the group has access to NSA files. What members doing with data after is up to members.
Spokesperson from Microsoft has already said that they will be preparing a response for this claim from the hacking group. Regarding the type of exploits the Shadow Brokers is promising to deliver, the group says it will deliver exploits for web browsers, routers, handsets and more.

Experts say this vulnerability has been understood among experts for months, yet too many groups failed to take it seriously. Although a temporary fix earlier slowed the infection rate, the attackers had now released a new version of the Ransomware.
What subscribers will do with these exploits and data will be up to them, the group said. It further said, "If a responsible party buys all lost data before it is sold, then Shadow Brokers will have no more financial incentives to be taking continued risks of operation and will go dark permanently".
Hacking tools believed to belong to the NSA that were leaked online last month were built into WannaCry ransomware - also known as WannaCrypt - that swept the globe on Friday. "75% of USA cyber arsenal".
The patch eventually came out in March, a month before the EternalBlue exploit was made public, however computer systems which had not applied the patch were still vulnerable to attack.
In her analysis of the Shadow Brokers' threat, independent security researcher Marcy Wheeler wrote that "simply by threatening another leak after leaking two sets of Microsoft exploits, Shadow Brokers will ratchet up the hostility between Microsoft and the government".
