Reuters exclusively reports governments turn tables on ransomware gang REvil by pushing it offline

Reuters exclusively reported the ransomware group REvil was itself hacked and forced offline by a multi-country operation. Former partners and associates of the Russian-led criminal gang were responsible for a May cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline that led to widespread gas shortages on the U.S. East Coast. REvil’s direct victims include top meatpacker JBS. The crime group’s “Happy Blog” website, which had been used to leak victim data and extort companies, is no longer available.
