the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Linden NJ, the FBI confirmed that Darkside ransomware is responsible for the compromise of the Colonial Pipeline networks. In an odd twist DarkSide, the group behind the ransomware attack that took down Colonial Pipeline, has apologized for the consequences of the hack.

The group clarified that its goal was to make money and not to create problems for society. It promises to vet future victims to avoid social consequences. DarkSide also claimed it isn’t associated with a specific nation-state but it tends to avoid targeting systems running in certain Russian and Eastern European languages. Colonial Pipeline aims to restore service by the end of the week.

According to Vice, the group’s apology was posted to its dark web site. It reads:

We are apolitical, we do not participate in geopolitics, do not need to tie us with a defined government and look for other our motives.
Our goal is to make money and not creating problems for society.

From today, we introduce moderation and check each company that our partners want to encrypt to avoid social consequences in the future.

    Oops, we went too far on this one, now the entire US gov’t will be after us
    … but we will still be attacking Americans in the future.

    Translation:
    We know better than to go after Russian or Russian controlled countries since Russia will kill us first and ask questions later.
