REvil Hackers Seized 1.2 Terabytes Of Personal Data Of Kenneth Copeland
A group of hackers called REvil, also known as Sodinokibi, hacked into the personal server of televangelist Kenneth Copeland, which a week earlier simulated an unhealthy fit of laughter after Joe Biden's announcement of the President of the United States.
According to rough estimates, Copeland's fortune is more than $ 700 million. REvil did not provide an exact ransom amount for threatening to release more than 1 terabyte of confidential televangelist data, but the threat announcement was withdrawn hours after publication.
The Daily Mail suggests that Copeland and the extortionists came to an agreement at short notice.
“Absolutely all servers and working computers of the company are hacked and encrypted, including financial documents, contracts, bank documents, sales history, [and] emails.” the group said in the statement on the Dark Web, which was reviewed by DailyMail.com.
In May of this year, this same group of hackers threatened Donald Trump shortly before the presidential election. REvil demanded a $ 42 million ransom for incriminating evidence. It is not known for certain whether Trump paid the hackers, but the incriminating evidence never appeared on the network.
A few months later, an unknown group of hackers also took over access to Donald Trump's campaign website. No requirements were announced, but there was still no revealing data on the network.
