U.S. authorities said they infiltrated the network of a major pipeline operator, and claim it is disbanding.
DarkSide, a ransomware service, announced they were stopping operations.
In an announcement in Russian, the group says they “lost access to part of its infrastructure, along with some of their financial assets, after an apparent raid by law enforcement authorities.”
“In view of the above and due to the pressure from the US, the affiliate program is closed. Stay safe and good luck. The landing page, servers, and other resources will be taken down within 48 hours,” the announcement read, according to a translation by Intel 471, a group of intelligence operators.
