Artur Sungatov, a known threat actor, has been implicated in the execution of malicious cyber activities involving LockBit ransomware. Alongside another Russian national, Ivan Kondratyev, also known as Bassterlord, Sungatov has been indicted by the US Justice Department for their suspected involvement with LockBit. These indictments were announced concurrently with the seizure of LockBit's data leak site and infrastructure, indicating a coordinated effort to dismantle this significant cybersecurity threat. The charges against Sungatov and Kondratyev involve the deployment of LockBit against numerous victims within the United States and globally. Targets included businesses across various industries such as manufacturing and semiconductors. The indictment was unsealed in the District of New Jersey, further highlighting the widespread impact of these cyber-attacks. This action represents a major step forward in the fight against international cybercrime, particularly those originating from Russia. In addition to Sungatov and Kondratyev, four other individuals have been arrested in connection with LockBit. Among them are Vasiliev, Ruslan Magomedovich Astamirov, who was apprehended in June 2023, and two others who were taken into custody in Ukraine and Poland. These arrests underscore the global cooperation among law enforcement agencies to combat the proliferation of ransomware attacks and bring perpetrators to justice.
