The Russian secret service has arrested several members of the REvil ransomware gang at the request of the United States.
A total of fourteen members of the gang have been arrested, according to a report statement. The action searched 25 homes in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Leningrad and Lipetsk, and seized 20 cars and other belongings worth 4.86 million euros.
It is a policy shift, because until recently, ransomware gangs in Russia had free rein. They did manage to temporarily take REvil offline, although the group returned later.
The group was behind the attack on the company Kaseya last year. Apple and meat processor JBS were also targets of REvil.
Taking computers hostage from large companies is so lucrative that the nuisance will not be over. The game store chain Game Mania is the youngest victim. Customer data may have been stolen as a result.
