LockBit registered nearly 200

More information about the business operations of the LockBit ransomware gang have emerged, a day after the UK National Crime Agency (NCA) and partners were able to apparently disrupt the group and deface its leak site.

According to The Register, the NCA found 187 groups and individuals registered inside the LockBit affiliate portal. LockBit operated on a Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) model, in which various groups signed up and used the encryptor and the infrastructure, in exchange for a cut of the profits (the ransom payment, essentially).
