Brazil’s Federal Police carried out eight search and seizure warrants Tuesday as part of an investigation into attacks claimed by the Lapsus$ Group that disrupted the country’s Ministry of Health last December, the agency announced in a press release.

Police did not specifically name Lapsus$ Group in the announcement.
