The US government has nothing to do with the fact that the hackers of the DarkSide group lost access to their servers. The Washington Post, citing government sources, reported this.
According to her information, neither military cyber operators nor employees of other US agencies took any action against a group of hackers, which, according to the US authorities, is behind the hacking of the systems of the American pipeline company Colonial Pipeline. It is noted that representatives of the Ministry of Justice, the FBI, the US National Security Council, and the National Security Agency declined to comment on the statement.
As Michael Daniel, the former White House cybersecurity coordinator in the Obama administration, told the newspaper, too little time has passed between the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline and the failure of the servers of the hacker group, so the US government cannot be behind this operation. On May 14, Recorded Future, a company based in the United States and working in the field of cybersecurity, reported that the hacker group DarkSide lost access to some of its servers. In addition, according to the company, the attackers also lost part of the funds received as a result of cyberattacks.
