Most of these exploits target older version of Windows however, some among them are also viable as hacks for more recent version of Windows - for instance, Windows 8.
"This is not a drill: NSA exploits affecting many fully-patched Windows systems have been released to the wild". One collection of 15 exploits contains at least four Windows hacks that researches have already been able to replicate.
"This leak basically puts nation-state tools into the hands of anyone who wants them", said Matthew Hickey, the director of security provider Hacker House. These tools, allowed NSA analysts to break into a range of systems, network equipment, and firewalls, and most recently tools to target the Linux operating system - many of which were old and outdated. Hickey was able to test out exploits in his United Kingdom firm's lab and confirmed they "work just as they are described". The group, which a year ago dumped malware it had allegedly stolen from The Equation Group, a hacking team associated with the NSA, posted new files over the weekend and followed up today with a dump of Windows exploits. In a blog post, he said it appeared that thousands of employee accounts and machines from the EastNets' offices had been compromised and that financial institutions in Kuwait, Bahrain and the Palestinian territories had been targeted for espionage.
Suiche advised Windows users who had versions of Windows equal or below Windows Vista that they were doomed "because those version of Windows aren't supported anymore".
"We are reviewing the report", a Microsoft spokesperson told Mashable, "and will take the necessary actions to protect our customers". An email to the NSA's press office has not been returned.
This dump also provides significant ammunition for those concerned with the U.S. government developing and keeping 0-day exploits.

He added that NSA "completely hacked" EastNets, one of two SWIFT service bureaus named in the documents that were released by the Shadow Brokers.
