Despite a war time situation with Russia, a Ransomware gang kept going attacking over 71 countries.
This has now been put to a stop via Europol and Eurojust.
In cooperation with Europol and Eurojust, law enforcement agencies from seven nations have arrested in Ukraine the core members of a ransomware group linked to attacks against organizations in 71 countries.
The cyber criminals paralysed major corporations' operations in attacks using ransomware such as LockerGoga, MegaCortex, HIVE, and Dharma.
"After remaining undetected in the compromised systems, sometimes for months, the criminals would deploy different types of ransomware, such as LockerGoga, MegaCortex, HIVE or Dharma," Eurojust said."
