The leak of tools used by threat groups, and spying agencies are events of inestimable importance in both the threat group and security worlds. To threat groups this is like free money. They now have access to someone else’s development efforts meaning they can spend less money developing the next payload for their own interests. On the security side it means that there is a high potential to see new variants of these tools hitting the wild which they now must defend against. It also increases the attack pool which they must defend against since now even unsophisticated groups have access to all the fun tools.
