FBI seizes Hive ransomware, saves victims millions (

"This hidden site has been seized. The Federal Bureau of Investigation seized this site as part of a coordinated law enforcement action taken against Hive Ransomware," a seizure notice displayed on Hive's dark web leak site reads. "This action has been taken in coordination with the United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida and the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section of the Department of Justice with substantial assistance from Europol."

The FBI confirmed Thursday that it had access to Hive's computer network since July 2022, allowing federal agents to capture and offer Hive's decryption keys to victims worldwide. Since its takeover, the FBI has helped more than 300 victims of the Hive ransomware, preventing more than $130 million in ransom payments, said U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland during a press conference on Thursday,

According to the government, the FBI also successfully disrupted a Hive ransomware attack on a Louisiana Hospital, saving the victim from a $3 million ransom payment, and another attack targeting a school based in Texas.
