A serious hacker group called “The Dark Overlord” has made some pretty bold claims regarding the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York, USA. The group is trying to capitalize on conspiracy theories surrounding the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers.
17 years after the most deeply impacting terrorist incident in recent history, the truth of the happenings still continues to haunt the world! It has reached a law firm and demanding an unspecified ransom in Bitcoin currency. If not complied, they are threatening to release insurance documents related to the 9/11 attacks.
It is unclear which files are in possession of the hacker group, but they suggest that they have access to a 10 GB archive of files they stole.
On Monday, the group tweeted:

They put up another Tweet yesterday:
We're releasing the first key for the "Preview_Documents" container. Use Veracrypt to decrypt the container. We're escalating. #tdohacked911 #hacking #cybercrime #leak #hack #thedarkoverlord #911hacked #topsecret #encryption #masterkey

The group claims to have 18,000 “confidential, classified and secret” documents obtained subversively from various U.S. law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and TSA, and are demanding a ransom paid in Bitcoin to keep the data under wraps.
Allegedly, the documents contain sensitive details related to insurance data and litigation which could presumably reveal what they believe to be the “true story” about what really happened on that fateful day.
