According to The Jerusalem Post, the Black Shadow group is the mastermind of the ransomware deployed on the IT infrastructure of Shirbit on December 1, 2020, who requested a ransom of 200 BTC (over $3.8 million as of press time).

Afterward, the Black Shadow announced through their Telegram channel that the amount would be increased with the past of the time.

A source quoted by Channel 12 Israel, who is involved in the investigation, said that the authorities believe that an Israeli individual or someone based in the country may be involved in the ransomware attack.

Although the directorate said the attack took place on December 1, 2020, Black Shadow published the first bulk of leaked files on November 30, 2020, on their Telegram channel.
