Police in Ukraine says officers conducted 21 searches in the capital of Kyiv and the surrounding region, searching defendants’ homes and cars, and seizing computer equipment, cars and about $185,000 in cash.

As part of those attacks, police say the Clop operation used a variety of tools, including pushing “FlawedAmmyy” RAT. Interpol did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is especially relevant as presidents Biden and Putin discuss the state of cyberthreats emanating from Russia, including the ransomware threats.

The arrests made by Ukraine are a reminder that the country is a strong partner for the U.S.  Big game hunting refers to targeting bigger victims and seeking larger ransom payouts, including charging twice – once for a decryptor and again for a promise to delete stolen data.

Clop ransomware has been active since February 2019 and targets large organizations for big game hunting,” says Kim Bromley, a senior cyber threat intelligence analyst at threat intelligence firm Digital Shadows.
