USA: The ransom paid to hackers has been recovered

The success of the operation – the first of its kind – was attributed to Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco. According to him, 63.7 bitcoins or $ 2.3 million were recovered this way.

“We will continue to use all our means and tools to maximize the costs and consequences of ransomware and other cyber attacks, by working against the entire ecosystem of recovery attacks and the payment of digital currency,” Monaco said. He added that this was the first step of a special committee set up to combat online fraudsters.

As head of the colonial pipeline, more than 8,000 km from the operator pipeline, the company paid the ransom of about 4 4.4 million demanded by hackers from Russia just hours after a cyber attack on its computer. However, it took almost a week to encrypt the encrypted data with the hacked key and restart the fuel transfer.

CB is the largest chain in the United States, supplying fuel to many stations in the southern United States. The cyberdock of fraudsters caused panic among buyers for several days, with huge queues and fuel shortages at thousands of gas stations.
