A joint operation between French and Ukrainian law enforcement has reportedly led to the arrests of several members of the Egregor ransomware operation in Ukraine.
As reported first by France Inter, on Tuesday, law enforcement made the arrests after French authorities could trace ransom payments to individuals located in Ukraine.
The arrested individuals are thought to be Egregor affiliates whose job was to hack into corporate networks and deploy the ransomware. France Inter also reports some individuals provided logistical and financial support.
