Over a third of last month’s attacks were linked to LockBit, a group that had its website seized by law enforcement in February. Some leaders of the group claim that the takedown did not completely stop their activities, and LockBit is still operating.

LockBit has claimed to have attacked many organizations lately. However, cybersecurity experts doubt these claims and believe it’s a public relations strategy to reassure partners that their operations are running smoothly.

Allan Liska, a ransomware expert from Recorded Future, tracks and analyzes data from extortion sites, government agencies, news reports, and hacking forums. Many attacks listed on the site seem to be duplicates or old attacks that were never posted on the extortion site to begin with.

“The problem is that it is often difficult to determine what is real and what is made up as a way for LockBit to save face… Criminals are, to put it gently, unreliable narrators when it comes to victim reporting.”
