A hacker group calling themselves the “The Dark Overlord” has threatened to release stolen secret documents relating to the 9/11 terrorist attack unless is it paid a ransom in bitcoin.
The group claims it stole the sensitive documents from U.S government agencies and insurers. The insurers supposedly targeted were Lloyds of London, Hiscox and Silverstein Properties, which owned the World Trade Centre complex RT reports.
Coincidentally Silverstein Properties had reinsured the World Trade Centre against destruction through terrorism just months before 9/11 and was awarded several billion dollars in damages.
The documents which contain confidential government information were supposed to be destroyed as per protocol but were kept by legal firms.
The hacker group claims the stolen material reveals:
“the truth about one of the most recognizable incidents in recent history and one which is shrouded in mystery with little transparency and not many answers.”
The Dark Overlord group has successfully hacked and released sensitive information before and claims that if its demands are not met it will release hundreds of gigabytes of secret information relating to the 9/11 tragedy.
