M1x, also known as Wazawaka, Boriselcin, and Uhodiransomwar, is a threat actor identified as Mikhail Pavlovich Matveev. This individual has been allegedly involved in malicious cyber activities since at least 2020. Matveev's primary mode of operation involves the deployment of ransomware, specifically three variants known as LockBit, Babuk, and Hive. These ransomware attacks have been targeted towards various sectors including law enforcement, government agencies, hospitals, and schools, causing significant disruption and damage. According to an indictment obtained by the District of New Jersey, Matveev not only deployed these ransomware variants but also transmitted ransom demands associated with each attack. The Department of Justice (DOJ) statement provides evidence of his extensive involvement in these cybercrimes. His actions represent a serious threat to both private and public entities, disrupting their operations and potentially leading to breaches of sensitive data. In May 2023, the DOJ announced the indictment of Matveev for his alleged participation in these separate conspiracies. His activities extend beyond the United States, affecting victims abroad as well. The charges brought against him underline the seriousness of his offenses and the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies to combat such threats. The indictment serves as a warning to other potential threat actors and highlights the importance of robust cybersecurity measures.
