A Russian hacker who collaborated with the well-known REvil group confirmed that cybercriminals returned to active work after a two-month break. He named political reasons the main reason for the temporary suspension of their activities. This refutes the claims of REvil members themselves, who explained this with precautions after the disappearance of one of the community members.
An anonymous cybercriminal said that the group initially planned only to suspend its activities, but not to end it completely. According to him, this step was due to the difficult geopolitical situation.
