According to the Associated Press:
A secretive group that published a trove of hacking tools allegedly used by U.S. spies has released a password that it says can unlock related files.
In a Medium post , the “Shadow Brokers” group revealed a password to files associated with the leaked toolkit, purportedly from the U.S. National Security Agency . Some security experts tweeted that the password works, but that couldn’t be independently verified.
An October leak by the group included information that experts said might identify computers used to obscure U.S. electronic eavesdropping.
