Whether or not REvil would honor that promise or even allow it to be negotiated down, or a coalition of victims cobble together those funds to potentially pay the ransomware-wielding attackers, remains to be seen. But some victims have reportedly already been negotiating individually with the attackers. “On Friday, we launched an attack on MSP providers,” REvil states in a message posted on Monday to its “Happy Blog” data-leak site. “More than a million systems were infected. If anyone wants to negotiate about universal decryptor – our price is $70 million in bitcoins and we will publish publicly decryptor that decrypts files of all victims, so everyone will be able to recover from attack in less than an hour. If you are interested in such deal – contact us.” Remote management software provider Kaseya counts 36,000 MSP customers worldwide, and the attack, which it discovered Friday, led U.S. President Joe Biden to order the launch of a full-scale federal investigation.
