It remains unclear as to whether further action will be taken against Lockbit after its website was taken offline, although an update is expected later today. 

A post signed by police said: “This site is now under the control of the National Crime Agency of the UK, working in close cooperation with the FBI and the international law enforcement task force, Operation Cronus.”

The new web page carried the logos of the FBI, NCA, Europol and multiple European police agencies, as well as forces from Australia, Japan and Canada.

In addition to Royal Mail, Lockbit’s ransomware has been used to target semiconductor manufacturing giant TSMC, and aerospace company Boeing. 

The group was also responsible for hacking the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which is one of the world’s largest lenders.

An alleged spokesman for the group posted on an encrypted messaging forum that its backup servers remain operational.
