Surprise! Media Missed the Real Story Behind the Ransonware Attack

This past weekend, hackers used pilfered National Security Administration (NSA) software to access computers in 150 countries, holding them "hostage" and demanding a ransom of $300 per device.

• How are the Shadow Brokers hackers related to the Fancy Bear hackers?

• Why do Russian hackers want to create confusion and chaos?
