The State Department unveiled a $10 million reward for details on the Blackcat ransomware group, responsible for breaching UnitedHealth Group’s systems in February.

The group is accused of targeting critical infrastructure networks, deploying ransomware, stealing data, and demanding payments.

The initiative aims to identify those involved in cyber attacks against US infrastructure. UnitedHealth Group continues its recovery efforts post-attack, with no fixed completion date yet.
