Who is behind the hacker group REvil?

REvil is fooling big corporations, banks and even American law enforcement agencies. Until recently, the public laughed at the hackers. Now it’s the other way around.

Because of the REvil attack, 800 Coop branches in Sweden had to close.

The chaos begins with an attack on the American IT service provider Kaseya. On Friday July 2nd, the REvil hacking group invaded Kaseya’s network. From there, the hackers get into the systems of thousands of other companies. The Swedish food company Coop is most obviously affected. It will close 800 branches over the weekend.
