US Offers $10 Million for Intel on Six Russian Intelligence Officers

According to foreign media reports on April 26, the U.S. offered a reward of up to $10 million for the information on six Russian military intelligence officials, including their identities and whereabouts, and published photos of the six people believed to have been involved in cyber attacks against critical U.S. infrastructure.

The U.S. State Department noted that the six officers, who work in a network Department of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU), participated in the global malware attack in 2017 that had infected the computer systems of several private entities in the United States, including a hospital system. The cyberattack titled “NotPetya” crippled parts of Ukraine’s infrastructure and damaged computer systems globally, including France, Germany, Italy, and the United States, with an estimated loss of billions of dollars.

The US federal grand jury has filed multiple charges against the six “Sandworm” unit officials in 2020, including conspiracy to commit computer fraud and abuse.
