      I just got done reading Amazing Spider-Man #1 (the second volume) and its revealed that some mystery person/creature hired the Scorpion to kill Peter- this was before Scorpion knew Peter was Spider-Man, but it seemed obvious that whoever sent him to kill Peter knew. This also seems to be where Scorpion first gets a symbiote, but it doesn't seem quite like a normal symbiote here, its this black goo that bonds to his armor instead of him and makes it turn black and get more powerful. I haven't read the later issues down the line, so does anyone know who was responsible for sending Scorpion to kill Peter and giving him the black goo???

    Your question is a twoparter and the answers are non-related. Scorpion bought the symbiote from Brock at an auction. Brock had cancer at the time and was trying to make money and get rid of the alien.

    It has been so long and the reveal so unforgettable that I don't recall who the mastermind behind the "everyone knows your secret and it is a giant conspiracy" tale.

Well, Norman Osborn was behind one of those, for sure, but both that and the symbiote were well in the future when ASM vol. 2 #1 came out.
