Suggesting it has the goods to fuel and expose 9/11 conspiracies, TheDarkOverlord announced on Pastebin that it has hacked major insurance companies and captured 18,000 secret documents. The group says it will release the data if its ransom demands are not met.
According to Motherboard, the hacking group claims it infiltrated Hiscox Syndicates Ltd, Lloyds of London, and Silverstein Properties. However, Hiscox reports that a law firm that advised the insurance company had been hacked–and its systems are not connected to the Hiscox IT infrastructure. A spokesperson for the insurance company wrote in an email to Motherboard, “One of the cases the law firm handled for Hiscox and other insurers related to litigation arising from the events of 9/11, and we believe that information relating to this was stolen during that breach.”
TheDarkOverlord is the hacking group responsible for leaking unaired (at the time) episodes of Orange is the New Black in 2017, when Netflix wouldn’t pay an extortion fee. Experts have also suspected that group to be responsible for cyberattacks on school systems.
Reportedly, the hackers have so far released some benign documents that mention the Transport Security Administration (TSA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in addition to other law firms.
