LockBit ransomware group announced via social media that they will be awarding $1,000 to individuals who tattooed the LockBit ransomware group logo on their body. When the news broke, it created a far too chaotic environment among people on social media. LockBit’s payouts ended on September 11th. Currently, more than ten people have tattoos of the LockBit logo, including a woman.
