    "[Ragnar Locker] Ransomware gang threatens to leak data if victim contacts FBI, police...

    The Ragnar Locker ransomware group is warning that they will leak stolen data from victims that contact law enforcement authorities, like the FBI.

    In an announcement published on Ragnar Locker's darknet leak site this week, the group is threatening to publish full data of victims who seek the help of law enforcement and investigative agencies following a ransomware attack.

    The threat also applies to victims contacting data recovery experts to attempt decryption and conduct the negotiation process..."

    "Technology giant Olympus hit by BlackMatter ransomware...

    Olympus is recovering from a ransomware attack that began in the early morning of September 8...

    BlackMatter is a ransomware-as-a-service group that was founded as a successor to several ransomware groups, including DarkSide, which recently bounced from the criminal world after the high-profile ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, and REvil, which went silent for months after the Kaseya attack flooded hundreds of companies with ransomware...

    Since the group emerged in June, Emsisoft has recorded more than 40 ransomware attacks attributed to BlackMatter..."

    "Bitdefender launches free REvil ransomware decryptor...

    Any REvil victim that was hit prior to July 13, 2021 can download the universal decryption tool from Bitdefender...

    Developed with assistance from an undisclosed law enforcement partner, the decryption tool can be downloaded from Bitdefender’s website for free, along with a step-by-step tutorial on how to use it.

    Decryptors provided by the REvil gang in the past have gained a reputation for being slow and unreliable, leaving many victims not much better off, but Botezatu said that because the new tool had been developed from scratch, it could be used in confidence..."
