The mysterious organization - called Shadow Brokers - claimed in April it had stolen a 'cyber weapon' from an American spying agency that gives unprecedented access to all computers using Microsoft Windows, the world's most popular computer operating system.
The hacking tool had been developed by the National Security Agency (NSA), America's powerful military intelligence unit. The NSA had developed its 'Eternal Blue' hacking weapon to gain access to computers used by terrorists and enemy states.
The gang in turn 'dumped' the computer bug on an obscure website on April 14, just a week after President Donald Trump ordered the U.S. bombing of Syria.
Some experts believe that timing is significant and indicates that Shadow Brokers has links to the Russian government.
It was reported yesterday that ransomware attacked computers in 74 countries around globe.
