So I was looking at the bitcoin status of the #ShadowBrokers account and something interesting began to take shape. What I noticed, with the help of my trusty Maltego (@paterva) was that some transactions with “tainted” bitcoins was happening. Of course I am using the word taint in it’s original form here in that there be some funky shit going on. It seems that not only that ShadowBrokers are WAY short of the eleventy billion bitcoins they want (at about $990.00 last night) but that if I am reading this right, some of the bitcoin payments are coming from the seized Silk Road bitcoins and account.

Well now isn’t that an iteresting development eh? So, is this to say that these coins are still in the coffers of the feds and they are being sent to ShadowBrokers to chum the water…
