[Slashdot] - REvil: Day of Reckoning For Notorious Cyber Gang


Recommended Posts

New submitter Computershack shares a report from the BBC: A global police operation has dealt a devastating blow to one of the most prolific cyber-crime gangs in history. The co-ordinated action against the REvil gang was announced on Monday by Romanian police, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and Europol. The raid, which took place both on and offline, led to the arrests of two alleged hackers in Romania and one accused cyber-criminal from Ukraine. REvil has been blamed for major hacks on global businesses in recent years. The US also announced that it had successfully retrieved more than $6 million in cryptocurrency from the gang in a so-called 'claw back' hacking operation.
