Early this week, the site on the dark web that were used to post the Medibank breaches has mysteriously disappeared. The hackers had so far made 5 sets of data releases, exposing 2700 customer records. With the site going offline, it has disrupted the release and distribution of the those personal information. However, it is unclear what the cause of the disruption was as the file server which hosted the site still remains online. The Australian Federal Police had previously announced that the hacker group had links to Russia and that they had reached out to the Russian authorities for assistance. It remains to be seen if law enforcement operations were the cause of the disruptions.
