Raid Forums Is Down. Who’s Behind Its Apparent Seizure?

On February 25, 2022, Raid Forums—a popular illicit online community notorious for its high-profile large-scale database leaks—was allegedly seized by an unknown identity. As of this publishing, it is not clear why Raid Forums was taken down, or who was responsible. No official government agency in any country has claimed responsibility for seizing the Raid Forums domain, nor has any cyber threat group; Raid had been operating, more or less continuously, since 2015.
