"The Eastern European hacker collective known as DarkSide purportedly disbanded over the weekend, after the group claimed their servers and a stash of Bitcoin had been seized. The ransomware group was responsible for the nearly weeklong shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline, which provides almost half of the East Coast's gas. It was not clear who or which country was responsible for the seizure.

Officials have pointed to the group as one of the most prominent in the rising phenomenon of ransomware-as-a-service, where hacker groups provide on-demand services to criminal groups or governments to take over IT systems of organizations around the globe. Colonial Pipeline reportedly paid DarkSide $5M to retrieve data and unlock its systems last week. Despite returning to full operations, gas shortages have lingered—more than 80% of stations were out of gas in the nation's capital as of this morning."
