Russian-linked cybercrime group REvil goes offline

REvil’s websites have vanished from the dark web for unexplained reasons, raising questions as to how and why this happened. Experts and commentators note there are a few possibilities: This might be the result of US or Russian law enforcement actions, a decision by the group itself, or Russia’s pressure on the group to lay low for a while after the attack against meat supplier JBS and the ransomware attack against software company Kaseya were attributed to REvil.
