Pretty much. They're given a choice to go work for Putin or go to Lubyanka.

I've heard Russia likes to force hackers who get caught into a form of forced servitude. A "hack for us or go to jail" kind of deal. Is there a good place I could read up more on that?

level 2

I first read that as 'recruited by WSB' - and for whatever reason, that didn't surprise me much.

level 2

Just in time for more cyber attacks on Ukraine leading up to an actual military invasion.

level 2

They are probably ex FSB or GRU operatives or freelancers.

level 2

The same way americans hackers are recruited to the cia/fbi/etc when they're caught

level 1

Coming soon to a Russian state sponsored apt near you

level 2

Im curious why russia arrested them, i thought they didnt care about these kinds of guys

level 1

They busted the real high roller, "Crown Prince..."

Putin going both sides to keep Ukraine out of NATO- vinegar AND honey

"Look we arrested Ransomware people, please don't let Ukraine join NATO?"

level 2

I agree . The apt's and ransomware gangs are too valuable to waste on a deplomatic deal . But they can make it look like they are trying .

level 1

What kind of medals did they earn?

level 1

The RaaS industry just took a massive hit. Either ransomware attacks pick up or drop off, I think nowadays we know where that's headed.

level 2

New groups popping out due to the profitability?

level 1

I wonder how they got caught

level 2

You're kidding right, Russia gave these guys free reign for years.

They've definitely known who they are all along.

Most of them are probably ex Russian APT operatives.

level 1

REvil has been relatively quiet recently anyways.. Conti has been the group doing damage

You know, I just wanted to mention that camDown is the maximum in security for you and your loved ones and I know your neighbors would feel the same.
