"Revolt Group" - A well-known game-cracker online, shut down by Bulgarian Authorities.


Revolt also known as 'RVT', ran by the very public head of their forum, Voski_Bulgarian who does most Steam fix announcements, has it's main focus set on repacking and providing online focused cracks; started sometime around 2013 which marks about when their official domain was created Revolt.group. This Warez group, headed by Voski has an undetermined number of people in it, theorized to be anywhere from 2 to 5 people. While Revolt 'Steam fix' Repacks or "RVTFIX's" allow players of RVT's community to play together via invitation over steam. in most cases they do not let RVT players play with legitimate players who bought said games.



Now, when visiting the website (http://revolt.group/), users are greeted by what it seems to be a "CyberCrime" warning, that the site was "blocked by the bulgarian cybercrime unit" because of "illegal content"


Many reddit users told simply that "I think it's a deal of a hacker instead of the ministry having anything to do with this. When they stop a website in Bulgaria it always says "This website is stopped due to copyright infringement" or other such errors by GDBOP or MVR it will never redirect to their website without any warning why it would do so, so that leads me to believe some hacker(maybe another Bulgarian maybe not) is playing tricks with Voksi and us by doing this.",  or "I'm really concerned about this. hope its kind of a bad joke and voksi is taking some rest."

If it is a hack of his website or Voski wanted to take a break or if it is the real deal, we don't know at this point. Reddit users also pointed out that Voski will be hired at Denuvo, but these are just rumours at this point.

As of recent the Revolt group has created their very own cheat protection that is built into any of their new releases called Revolt anti-cheat (RAC), this anti-cheat software built directly into these steam fixes provides protection for RVT players against cheaters in games that have none.

UPDATE: 
DRM group Denuvo which has faced intense backlash for using shady DRM and bundling it in with games is now had enough of crackers, REVOLT GROUP in particular and has launched legal action with the Bulgarian authorities against Voksi (the owner of REVOLT). His charges are currently unknown.

Denuvo issued this statement to the press.

"A 21-year-old Bulgarian man, aka Voksi, from Dimitrovgrad, Bulgaria, allegedly responsible for the hacking of a number of games carrying Denuvo’s Anti-Tamper software, has been arrested following a collaboration between Irdeto and the Bulgarian Cybercrime Unit.

Following an initial investigation by Irdeto into the hacking of Denuvo Anti-Tamper software, the findings were passed to the Bulgarian Cybercrime Unit and resulted in the raid on a premises in Dimitrovgrad, Bulgaria on Tuesday. During the raid, computers and other items suspected to have been used in the piracy of a range of titles were seized by police.

“Piracy is a threat that is now firmly established in the gaming industry, and we are focused on securing the content of game publishers and ensuring that hackers cannot distort the gaming environment for personal gain at the expense of other players,” said Mark Mulready, Vice President, Cybersecurity Services, Irdeto. “The swift action of the Bulgarian police on this matter shows the power of collaboration between law enforcement and technology providers and that piracy is a serious offence that will be acted upon."


The Bulgarian Cybercrime Unit added, “We can confirm that a 21-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of offenses related to cybercrime and that computing equipment was confiscated. Our investigations are ongoing.”"


Voski has since been released on bail and has posted his statement onto Crackwatch (subreddit) and he is actively looking for legal representation. 


"So, as many of you noticed, REVOLT is down since yesterday(26th July) and redirecting to some bullshit site.

It finally happened, I can't say it wasn't expected, Denuvo filed a case against me to the bulgarian authorities. Police came yesterday and took the server pc and my personal PC. I had to go to the police afterwards and explain myself.

Later that day I contacted Denuvo themselves and offered them a peaceful resolution to this problem. They can't say anything for sure yet, but they said the final word is by the prosecutor of my case.


Sadly, I won't be able to do what I did anymore. I did what I did for you guys and of course because bloated software in our games shouldn't be allowed at all. Maybe someone else can continue my fight.


If you you are a lawyer or someone who wants to fight, or just someone who wants to express his feelings, you can contact me currently over the RVT Discord of personally on Discord - Voksi#3486."
