This operation is pretty impressive:
Notorious ransomware gang LockBit's website has been taken over by law enforcement authorities, who claim they have disrupted the group's operations and will soon reveal the extent of an operation against the group.
But Europol has reportedly taken credit for shutting down LockBit, so perhaps Operation Cronos really has disrupted the gang’s operations.
Reportedly there have been multiple arrests, data has been found that is expected to lead to more arrests, and multiple crypto currency accounts have been seized. Eleven countries worked together on this which is also impressive.
We will see how much impact this has but Lockbit is one of the biggest ransomware schemes out there.
And this isn't the only one of these takedowns in the last couple of months. Well done.
