In an effort to put pressure on the DarkSide Ransomeware Group, the government announced on Thursday a $10 million reward for information about the key leadership individuals in the DarkSide ransomware group—or any of it’s rebranded groups. The State Department’s $5 million dollar bounties are for intel and information that could help authorities arrest and convict others conspiring with the transnational organized crime syndicate. These efforts are in response to the DarkSide’s attack on Colonial Pipeline that disrupted fuel distribution to the East Cost for a week. The extra security after that attack led the Darkside to close its open operations—but they have been attempting to come back in the form of BlackMatter.
