The Shadow Brokers (Part Two: Execute)

The enigmatic Shadow Brokers, who seemingly disappeared in January of 2017, would break their silence just three months later.

Following the destruction of a Syrian airbase in April 2017, the Shadow Brokers returned to continue their campaign of cyber-terror. They lashed out at President Trump (and others) in deranged posts online, and began to leak more exploits and tools allegedly stolen from the NSA's most secretive units.
