European authorities and the FBI bust ransomware group that launched $11 million attack on Capcom | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #ransomware

With just a touch of bravado, the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (or Europol) has announced “a major blow” to the Ragnar Locker ransomware group. To you and me, that name is mostly familiar because of the organisation’s 2020 attack on Capcom, which saw it demand $11 million and affect around 400,000 people’s data. 

To Europol, Ragnar Locker was more notable for its attacks on “critical infrastructure” around the world, most recently “against the Portuguese national carrier and a hospital in Israel.”
