Rampant hacker group REvil—recognized for utilizing ransomware to extort firms for thousands and thousands and promoting information on the darkish net when it would not get its manner—has gone silent after lastly receiving some penance, it might appear.
In accordance with reviews (by way of Tech Crunch), the group’s Tor cost portal and information leak weblog have been hijacked, leaving the group crippled and platformless.
A latest publish from one menace actor related to REvil, 0_neday, notes the assault not solely took down ‘Blissful Weblog,’ it additionally deleted the trail to the Tor service config recordsdata, changing it with a malicious one to catch out the miscreants.
