FBI held back ransomware decryption key from businesses to run operation targeting hackers
So if I read it right, the fbi had the private key but kept it secret while trying to take down REvil. This in turn cost many organizations millions of dollars they could have saved by having that key. REvil shuttered their servers and got away before the fbi could do anything.
Crappy situation but the move on the fbi side makes sense.
CISA have always held back vulnerabilities haven’t they? If so, hard to argue this is any different
See! We can trust the government! /s
