From the DOJ Hive disruption press release:
"Since late July 2022, the FBI has penetrated Hive’s computer networks, captured its decryption keys, and offered them to victims worldwide, preventing victims from having to pay $130 million in ransom demanded. Since infiltrating Hive’s network in July 2022, the FBI has provided over 300 decryption keys to Hive victims who were under attack."
Every word of this is true for the dollar. The scams are bad, but it's hilarious watching mouth-frothing regulators spew non-sequitors like "How can anyone accept crypto as payment when it could be worth less the very next day?" during spiking inflation.
End of an era? "A difficult decision to set us up for the future" https://blog.google/inside-google/message-ceo/january-update/
