11:18 pm
a hack on colonial pipeline. the operator of the largest gasoline pipeline in the united states, the russian cyber criminals called themselves dark side and used a ransomware attack to gain access to colonial data, and then demanded 75 bitcoin to release it. about $4400000.00. the company ended up paying and investigators have recovered a large part of the ransom about $64.00 bit coins worth. based on our investigation into dark side and incredible work with other u. s. government partners. we identified a virtual currency wallet that the dark side actors used to collect the payment from a victim. using law enforcement authorities, victim funds were seized from that wallet, preventing dark side actors from using. cyber attacks are on the rise just a few days ago. the world's largest meat packers j. b. s fell victim to
11:19 pm
a ransomware attack. the company was forced to shut down meat factories in north america and australia. according to cyber intelligence company group i be in 2020. the number of ransomware attacks increased by 150 percent compared to the previous year. and new record is expected this year. all right, for more on this, let's go to yes. quarter financial correspondent in new york. yet there he is. ends the c e. o, colonial actually testified today in congress. how important is this issue for the u. s. government right now cyberattacks it's definitely pretty high on the agenda of joe biden into administration. it's a very serious problem. grove, problem. i mean the f b, i reported that they had been 90, a tex on us institution, a loan from dark side. and joe biden will spend billions of dollars from his
