I’m often asked why can’t large companies take down threat actors. The answer is pretty complex. In short, threats are typically a combination of threat actors running their business spread across the globe with new groups continuously forming. The goal isn’t to take down a threat actor (however sometimes it happens). The goal is to slow down the threat actors or make their efforts no longer profitable so they move on to something else.
The security affairs posted about how Google is taking part in the battle against CryptBot. It’s a interesting read to see how much effort is involved just to slow down a threat actor. That article can be found HERE.
