Last week, an unknown party quietly leaked portions of GrayKey code onto the internet, and demanded over $15,000 from Grayshift—ironically, the price of an entry-level GrayKey—in order to stop publishing the material. The code itself does not appear to be particularly sensitive, but Grayshift confirmed to Motherboard the brief data leak that led to the extortion attempt.

"Mr. David Miles," the extortionists' first message, published on Thursday, reads, addressing a co-founder of Grayshift. "This is addressed to you and any other people interested in keeping GrayKey product secure and not available to the wide [sic] public."
