REvil Ransomware Gang Suddenly Disappear

Apart from websites, the media that has been used by the group to communicate had also stopped. Even all the dark websites that are associated with the REvil ransomware group are now inaccessible.

This attack is one of the big attacks of REvil, and after implementing the attack, this ransomware gang has charged $70 million for a comprehensive decryptor for all victims that got affected by this attack but soon after the demand the group decreased the demanded price to $50 million.

Dismissal possibilities 

According to the law enforcement team, security experts have raised few dismissal possibilities, and here we have mentioned them below:-

  • It might happened, because initially, the United States has made a strong settlement to attack the servers of this group.
  • It might happened due to the discussion between Vladimir Putin and Biden, and as a result, Russia has taken few actions to follow the United States’ demands. All this has been done to stop mutual relations from starting to undergo due to repeated attacks.
  • It may also be possible that the REvil group itself has eliminated all of its websites. However, their attacks have obtained nearly 42%, and it’s becoming quite risky for them to implement further attacks, that’s why doing this will help them a lot, and later the attackers could appear again under a new name and with new victims.

However, REvil ransomware group was in the spotlight as last month, the group has attacked JBS, the world’s biggest supplier of beef and poultry, as well as the second-largest producer of pork.

Moreover, the analysts are still trying their best to find the possible reasons and the loopholes for such a situation. Even they have also claimed that there are many possibilities and they are striving to know all of them as soon as possible.
