The DarkOverlord Revealed First Part of Hacked «9/11 Files»

They have also stated the cost of every layer of information.

According to cyberscoop, the Dark Overlord on late Thursday published the decryption keys to the first installment of what it calls the “9/11 Files,” a database the hackers say they pilfered from various international insurers. The group had previously announced it would publish stolen material in five data dumps to be released only after escalating donation goals had been met. The Dark Overlord’s bitcoin wallet had received 15 payments by late Friday.

One of the documents released today relates to al-Baraka Investment and Development Corporation, one of the defendants in a case launched by the U.S. law firm Motley Rice, which is representing 6,600 survivors of the 9/11 attacks and their family members. The firm’s goal in the case is to “hold responsible the individuals, banks, corporations and purported charities historically implicated in sponsoring al Qaeda’s terrorist activities.”

In an official press release, takers stated:
Each layer contains more secrets, more damaging materials, more SSI, more SCI, more government investigation materials, and generally just more truth”, they said in a statement.

They have split what they call “9/11 Papers” into five layers, with Layer 1 standing for the most insignificant material and Layer 5 containing the most sensitive data.

Their plan is the following:
• Layer_1.container – 5000 USD в BTC
• Layer_2.container – 50 000 USD в BTC
• Layer_3.container – 100 000 USD в BTC
• Layer_4.container – 1 000 000 USD в BTC
• Layer_5.container – 2 000 000 USD в BTC
CCN points out that it’s hard to tell what impact full knowledge of the 9/11 events would have on society. Arguably, by and large our institutions and people have adapted to the change in security culture.
