The UK has led a big move to stop what’s believed to be the world’s largest ransomware gang, Lockbit. The National Crime Agency (NCA) got into Lockbit’s systems and took their data.

Lockbit, based in Russia, is a major player in ransomware, making big money by hacking into computers and demanding payment to unlock them.

This operation, involving the UK, FBI, and others, is a huge blow to cybercrime. Lockbit’s website now says it’s under law enforcement control.

This could help prevent future attacks and make the internet safer.

The BBC shared this story, and it’s a big win in the fight against cybercrime.
