Russia Detains REvil Ransomware Hackers at the Request of U.S. Law Enforcement

The Biden administration praised the Kremlin for detaining members of a notorious ransomware gang at the request of the U.S. in a sweeping operation across Russia.

Law enforcement raided the homes of 14 members of the gang REvil and seized currencies worth nearly $7 million, cryptowallets and 20 luxury cars, according to a statement Friday by Russia’s Federal Security Service, known as FSB. Authorities in the U.S. have been informed that the group was shut down, it said.
