REvil/Sodinokibi: With the timer running out on the first auctions on REvil/Sodinokibi’s new auctions page, there has been an unexpected development–the data was posted for free. When REvil first began the auctions for data belonging to two companies in the food production industry, it was unclear what would happen if the data did not sell. That question has now been answered with the timer on the first auction running out over the evening. Following its failure to sell, REvil unlocked all of the files belonging to the victim. The second auction timed out this morning while this article was being written, and that data was automatically published for free as well. Two more auctions are currently live with one having nearly 29 days for bidding to take place, and the other having just under four days until it is published. The first victim is a law firm which represents science and technology firms and specializes in Intellectual Property (IP) law; the law firm’s data has been put up for auction with a starting bid of one million USD. The second is for a smaller personal injury law firm based in Louisiana and starts at $30,000 USD.
