Alphv/BlackCat Hackers 

BlackCat, also known as ALPHV and Noberus is a malicious ransomware. In November 2021 it made its first appearance. It is also the name of threat actors and hacker gang who exploit it.

In 2022 the FBI released an advisory that several developers and money launderers for BlackCat had links to two defunct ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) groups. They were the DarkSide and BlackMatter hacker gangs.
