That article doesn’t seem to say anything new about Dark Matter that hasn’t 
been reported before, doesn’t present evidence and doesn’t cite sources. 
Furthermore the article appears to allege that Dark Matter “discussed” 
potentially targeting The Intercept, not that it “tried to hack several of 
their employees”. To wit, from the article:

"It is not clear if an attack against The Intercept was ever carried out."

I understand the concerns regarding Dark Matter but uncertainty shouldn’t lead 
to this level of low quality arguments. I still hope that stronger evidence 
against Dark Matter will come forward so that this can be settled once and for
