The U.S. government Tuesday announced a reward of up to $10 million for information pertaining to six alleged Russian military hackers tied to the 2017 NotPetya destructive malware campaign. NotPetya was wiper malware, disguised as ransomware, which was distributed via a legitimate Ukrainian software developer’s update server. The malware spread globally, causing commercial damage of up to $10 billion. A federal grand jury in October 2020 indicted the six Russians, all believed to be military intelligence officers serving in Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate, or GRU, for launching NotPetya (see: 6 Takeaways: Russian Spies Accused of Destructive Hacking).
