Why would cybercriminals who bilked more than $2 billion from companies with GandCrab retire when they have the resources and the ability to continue to steal? Apparently they didn’t retire, and the FBI has warned companies to stay vigilant as it is believed that the backers of GandCrab have regrouped and launched a new ransomware dubbed REvil.
