A photo of an alleged member of Conti, a ransomware gang distributed by the US

The United States (US) is distributing a photo of an alleged member of the Conti ransomware group. The US government is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the identification or location of members of the group.

This is the first time an alleged member of Conti has been photographed Scattered by the US government. Conti delivers ransomware through a service model. In practice, other cybercriminals can obtain ransomware through the service provided by Conti. They only need to distribute this ransomware.

Conti ransomware has already caused a lot of damage. The ransomware first emerged in 2019 and has since been used to launch more than 1,000 attacks on US and international critical infrastructure. Think detectives, care providers, emergency numbers and municipalities. In Conti ransomware attacks, attackers often steal files from data and encrypt servers and workstations. If the demanded ransom is not paid, the attackers will either sell the data or publish it via a public website controlled by the Kandi creators.
