Dark web infrastructure used by the REvil (aka Sodinokibi) ransomware syndicate dropped offline on Tuesday 13 July, but there is as yet no clarity over why, leaving the security community at a loss to understand exactly what happened.
At the time of writing, there are several equally plausible scenarios behind the REvil gang’s sudden disappearance. It could be as simple a matter as a technical problem, or an internal bust-up between its operators.
The gang members could also be lying low in an attempt to avoid being the subject of retaliation by law enforcement following their recent high-profile attack on Kaseya, or they could even have already been compromised and arrested.
