The U.S. State Department announced a $10 million reward for information on Conti ransomware members, including showing the face of one of the members for the first time.

Conti is extremely damaging ransomware due to the speed with which encrypts data and spreads to other systems.

Today, for the first time, the State Department revealed the face of a known Conti ransomware operator known as ‘Target,’ offering rewards of up to $10 million for information on him and four other members known as ‘Tramp,’ ‘Dandis,’ ‘Professor,’ and ‘Reshaev.’

The Conti Ransomware is a notorious ransomware operation believed to be responsible for over 1,000 attacks worldwide and receiving ransom payments of over $150 million.

To submit a tip, the State Department has set up a dedicated Tor SecureDrop server that can be used to submit information on the wanted Conti members anonymously.
