    Cybercriminal Group Blamed for Colonial Pipeline Hack Says It Is Disbanding


    The cybercriminal outfit that U.S. authorities have said infiltrated the network of a major pipeline operator, leading to gas shortages and rising prices, is claiming that it is disbanding.
    DarkSide, which operates ransomware as a service, announced Thursday they were stopping operations.

    In an announcement in Russian, the group said they lost access to part of its infrastructure, along with some of their financial assets, after an apparent raid by law enforcement authorities.
    Affiliates that use DarkSide’s ransomware were told they will be given tools so victims can regain access to data that attackers held hostage in return for payment.
    “In view of the above and due to the pressure from the US, the affiliate program is closed. Stay safe and good luck. The landing page, servers, and other resources will be taken down within 48 hours,” the announcement read, according to a translation by Intel 471, a group of intelligence operators.
    The attack on Colonial Pipeline earlier this month prompted the Georgia-based company to shut down certain parts of its network. That led to a major U.S. pipeline going offline, which in turn led directly and indirectly to gas shortages and rising prices at the pump.

    BUT Biden wants to play nice with the Russians? This fuck is going to ruin America he lost what little brain he EVER had! Hey Joe RUSSIA is our enemy, just like China - Iran and NoKo!



    Reports suggested Colonial paid millions of dollars to get a tool to regain access to system parts the hackers invaded, but the company has declined to confirm that publicly, as has the U.S. government.
    The FBI this week said the DarkSide ring was responsible for the compromise of Colonial networks. DarkSide appeared to acknowledge that much in an earlier statement, saying they are apolitical with the goal of making money and not creating problems for society.
    “From today we introduce moderation and check each company that our partners want to encrypt to avoid social consequences in the future,” it said.

    DarkSide utilizes a highly targeted approach to attacking victims by using custom ransomware and a corporate-like method of communication throughout their attacks, according to Digital Shadows, a cybersecurity firm. Last year, the company said it did not attack companies in certain sectors, like education.
    Security researchers expressed skepticism of DarkSide’s new announcement.

    Robert Lee, co-founder and CEO of Dragos, said on Twitter that the move “is almost certainly a rebranding attempt to avoid the heat.”
    DarkSide and another ransomware group, Babuk, which said it was shifting operations on Thursday after taking credit for obtaining and leaking information from Washington’s police department, took the actions in reaction to “the high-profile ransomware attacks covered by the media this week,” Intel 471 said.
    “However, a strong caveat should be applied to these developments: it’s likely that these ransomware operators are trying to retreat from the spotlight more than suddenly discovering the error of their ways. A number of the operators will most likely operate in their own closed-knit groups, resurfacing under new names and updated ransomware variants,” it added.
    President Joe Biden told reporters earlier Thursday that the U.S. government has “strong reason” to believe the Colonial hackers were based in Russia but were not backed by the Russian government.

    “We have been in direct communication with Moscow about the imperative for responsible countries to take decisive action against these ransomware networks,” he said. “We’re also going to pursue a measure to disrupt their ability to operate. And our Justice Department has launched a new task force dedicated to prosecuting ransomware hackers to the full extent of the law.”
    An international task force that included officials from Microsoft, Amazon, New York state, and the U.S. government, said in a report sent to the Biden administration last month that the United States should “execute a sustained, aggressive, whole of government, intelligence-driven anti-ransomware campaign, coordinated by the White House.”

    On Colonial Pipeline either they had an IT department made up of a bunch of little bsm2 type people who had no idea about proper security or it was a inside job.

    And it sounds like the Reps don't want their precious billionaires and large corporations to get taxed. Those poor billionaires.

    IDF: Video Captures Deadly Missile Slamming Into Gaza, But It Was Not Fired from Israel

    Amid its deadly battle with Hamas, Israel launched a strike in the war of public opinion on Thursday by noting Hamas is a danger to the people it allegedly protects.
    The Israel Defence Forces posted a video on Twitter showing what it said was a Hamas misfire that ended up adding to the wreckage of Gaza.
    “WATCH as a Hamas rocket aimed at Israel misfires and falls back into Gaza. But this isn’t the 1st time — Hamas misfired 350 rockets in the last 3 days,” the IDF tweeted. “These rockets result in the deaths of innocent Gazan civilians. It’s time for the world to hold Hamas accountable.”

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1392946133383647234


    The Jewish News Syndicate quoted an Israeli security official as saying 17 residents of Gaza were killed by Hamas misfires during a three-hour span on Thursday.
    The IDF tweeted late Thursday that ground troops were moving into Gaza, but none actually entered the Palestinian enclave.

    Jonathan Conricus, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces who said ground forces were in Gaza, later cited “an internal communication error” and implied the information was released as a result of a misunderstanding, according to The Times of Israel.
    But Israeli media, and some correspondents on the ground, suggested the so-called mistake was in fact a ploy designed to send Hamas terrorists into a network of tunnels below Gaza prior to a planned Israeli operation against them.

    During a massive air assault that began early Friday, shortly after the announcement about ground troops, Israel unleashed a sustained 40-minute bombing attack against Gaza, according to The Jerusalem Post.
    During the assault targeting the terrorists’ network of tunnels, 160 aircraft dropped more than 450 missiles against 150 targets.
    Brig. Gen. Hidai Zilberman of the IDF called the underground network a “strategic asset” to Hamas.

    “This is the largest focused operation against a focused target that we have conducted so far,” Conricus said, according to The New York Times.
    The IDF said it attacked t
    The Gaza Health Ministry said 115 Palestinians have died in this week’s violence and 600 were injured.
    Israel is responding to more than 2,000 rockets and mortars fired at it from the Gaza strip this week.
    Despite Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, some rockets have made it through, killing nine Israelis, according to the Times of Israel.

    The international community has called for talks to end the violence, but Israeli officials say they have a job to complete first.
    “The Americans are talking to me, the Egyptians are talking to me, but I remain focused on the reason we went out on this campaign: to make Hamas and Islamic Jihad pay a price,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said, according to The New York Times.

    So the Pentagon pulls 120 troops from Israel and Biden sends 235 million to the Palestinians I wonder how much of that money was spent on Rockets when it was supposed to be used for humanitarian aid?
    DO NOT GIVE AID TO OUR ENEMIES!
