Russia's security agency said it arrested members of the Russia-based cyber gang REvil that was responsible for multiple massive ransomware attacks against U.S. companies last year, including the cyberattack that crippled the Colonial Pipeline. The agency also said it seized $600,000, 500,000 euros, 426 million rubles, 20 cars purchased with that money, and crypto wallets that were used to commit the cybercrimes. The arrests were made based on an appeal from the United States.
