Romanian law enforcement arrested a 41-year-old Romanian national affiliated with a ransomware group. The individual is suspected of having compromised the network of a large Romanian IT company delivering services to clients in across several different sectors. The Romanian National Police were supported by the FBI and Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre in the operation. This arrest falls in line with the current global law enforcement strategy to disrupt ransomware groups by arresting affiliates, knowing the core group of gangs are operating out of Russia with impunity from the Russian authorities.
