A hacking group called the Shadow Brokers claims to have turned the tables on the US National Security Agency (NSA) by hacking into its servers, stealing information and auctioning it off. Reports have it that the Shadow Brokers broke into the NSA by exploiting a team of in-house hackers at the agency called the Equation Group.

Once they solved this puzzle they were able to maraud through servers and pluck them for their goodies, and they are now trying to sell this information to the highest bidder.

The online response to the leak suggests that the package is small but powerful, and includes some of the NSA's elite hacking tools.

A Tumblr blog operated by the hacker outfit has apparently been wiped clean. "There's nothing here. Whatever you were looking for doesn't currently exist at this address. Unless you were looking for this error page, in which case: Congrats! You totally found it," says a holding page.

The NSA press and media website is currently unavailable in what may be an unrelated issue, but the organisation has yet to comment on the incident.
