Justice Department Brings New Charges Against Ransomware Hackers  | Democracy Now!

The Justice Department said Monday it has indicted two hackers behind major ransomware attacks in the U.S. and has recovered more than $6 million in cryptocurrency payments. Attorney General Merrick Garland said one of the two men, a Russian hacker with the REvil ransomware gang, remained at large, while a Ukrainian co-conspirator had been arrested in Poland and would be extradited to the U.S. for trial. Garland said the criminal gang’s ransomware has infected over 175,000 computers worldwide, with at least $200 million paid in ransom.
