The notorious ransomware hacking group REvil vanished into thin air after President Joe Biden issued a warning.
REvil’s dark web sites mysteriously disappeared after President Biden issued an ultimatum to Vladimir Putin; the ultimatum demanded Putin’s intervention against Russian ransomware attacks.
Last week, REvil locked the computers of 200+ US companies linked to IT firm Kaseya. The group demanded a $70M Bitcoin ransom. After Biden’s warning, though, experts say the hackers quietly pulled their site… but they could be waiting to launch under a different name.
Hackers have pulled $33M in Bitcoin this year. Will this hacking hysteria ever stop?! Who knows.
