This article is about the Shadow Brookers. A hacker ground that was able to obtain high level information from the NSA. They actually obtained code itself, which they used for devastating hacks across the world. This has brought the NSA into a crisis as they look for turncoats and as staffers leave for better paying jobs.

The hacker group might be linked to Russia, the article states. The article then poses the question on whether secrecy is possible with this plague of leakers and hackers. The USA has focused on offense rather then defense. What is scaring about this group is that they haven’t been caught with the full force of the NSA after them.

Cyber warfare is undoubtedly going to be what our nation is concerned about in the foreseeable future.
