Servers of Colonial Pipeline hacker Darkside forced down, says cyber security firm

Published: Updated:

Servers for Darkside were taken down by unknown actors on Friday, a week after the cyber extortionist forced the shutdown of a large US oil pipeline in a ransomware scam, a US cyber security firm said.

Recorded Future, the security firm, said in a post that the allegedly Russia-based Darkside operator “Darksupp” had admitted in a web post that it lost access to certain servers used for its web blog and for payments.
