Last week news broke that the lawfirm Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks known for representing the Hollywood Elit and the biggest names in the music industry had been the victim of a hack by the ransomware group behind the malware Sodinokibi.
The group threatened to release up to 756GB of stolen data if the didn't recive $21M in Monero (XMR)
FBI has stated this hack is considered an act of international terrorism and that negotiating with or paying ransom to terrorists is a violation of federal criminal law so no ransom was paid to the group and the group have now released 2GB of documents marked Lady Gaga on there darkweb site.
But this case has now escalated to what could be the biggest news of the year and maby bigger than the coronavirus because now the group is going after the most powerful man in the world, Donald Trump.
Now the ransom has dubbled to $42 million in Monero (XMR) and they have published an explosive message that will spread around the world faster than the corona virus based on its gossip value.
"There’s an election going on, and we found a ton of dirty laundry on time.”
“Mr Trump, if you want to stay president, poke a sharp stick at the guys, otherwise you may forget this ambition forever. And to you voters, we can let you know that after such a publication, you certainly don’t want to see him as president … The deadline is one week.
“Grubman, we will destroy your company down to the ground if we don’t see the money.”
According to PageSix sources Donald Trump has never been a Grubman client, either as a private businessman or during his administration.
So i'm thinking that this could just be a form of scare tactic from the group to get more attention and to increase there chance to receive the ransom money or does the law firm keep some of there clients secret? We will have to keep a close look at the price of Monero to see if there is a big spike.
We all want our secrets to rename secret and i'm not a big star but i can understand the stars frustration and how scary it must be to have there secrets released and nothing they can do to stop it.
In the last election Donald Trump praised and loved every release WikiLeaks instead of being sympathetic to the victims of the WikiLeaks release.
Thankyou for taking the time!
