REvil Websites Have Gone Offline

The websites of the Russian hacker gang behind the Kesaya attack have been unreachable since July 13th, 2021.

Website Disappearance

A payment website and a blog, run by the Russian hacker gang REvil, suddenly disappeared this Tuesday. Consequently, this comes right after a series of cyberattacks on US businesses. 

Although the reason is unknown, many speculate that authorities might have something to do with it. 

Right now, the relationship between Russia and the US is growing tenser, because of cybercrime. 

The US Expects Russia To Act

President Joe Biden revealed that during a phone call on Friday, he insisted that president Vladimir Putin is to take action against the growing threat that is cybercrime. The head of the United States also claimed that he is ready to do whatever necessary to stop the Russian cyberattacks

This sparked speculations that authorities from either the US or Russia might be the reason why REvil’s websites suddenly became unreachable. Officials, however, refused to comment on that. 

Experts claim that it is not unusual for hacker groups to suddenly go off the grid.

The world will be losing $6 trillion a year due to cybercrime. Now, more than ever, it is important for users to ensure they are protected. A good antivirus software is a step in the right direction.
