The Hive ransomware gang is more active and aggressive than its leak site shows, with affiliates attacking an average of three companies every day since the operation became known in late June. Security researchers gleaning information straight from Hive’s administrator panel found that affiliates had breached more than 350 organizations over four months.

The gang’s data leak site currently lists only 55 companies that did not pay the ransom, suggesting that a large number of Hive ransomware victims paid the ransom.
A conservative estimation places Hive ransomware gang’s profits into millions of U.S. Dollars between October and November alone.
