Hackers who reportedly had “dirty laundry” on President Donald Trump claim the information has been sold.
The hacker group REvil is asking for $1 million for data on Madonna after allegedly selling the Trump information stolen from famous lawyer Allen Grubman, according to a report published Monday by Page Six. The group reportedly hacked into the entertainment law firm’s server and stole 756 gigabytes of confidential documents.

“Interested people contacted us and agreed to buy all the data about the US president … We are pleased with the deal and keep our word,” REvil said. “We are preparing to auction Madonna data … The buyer has the right to do whatever he sees fit with the data.”
The group originally demanded $42 million for the information on Trump, according to Fox News. However, Trump has never been a client of Grubman, Page Six reported. (RELATED: Hackers Demand $42 Million From Entertainment Lawyer Allen Grubman, Threaten To Publish Info On President Trump)
“The next person we’ll be publishing is Donald Trump … We found a ton of dirty laundry,” the hacker group said.
“Mr Trump, if you want to stay president, poke a sharp stick at the guys, otherwise you may forget this ambition forever,” the hackers added. “And to you voters, we can let you know that after such a publication, you certainly don’t want to see him as president.”
As previously reported, Grubman refused to pay the ransom.
