A Ransomware Gang’s Internal Drama Leaked After It Backed Russia

  • Data dump lays bare Conti’s tactics, secrets and discord
  • Researchers can use information to prep for future hacks

One of the world’s most successful ransomware groups is reeling from a massive dump of its own internal data after the cybercriminal gang aligned itself with the Russian government.

Conti, a cybercriminal group that researchers say is based in Russia, has extorted millions of dollars from U.S. and European companies in recent years. It provides affiliates around the world with malware that they deploy against victims in exchange for a cut of the ransom payments.
