According to a statement issued by State Department spokesperson Ned Price on Friday, the United States is offering up to $15 million in rewards for information on the Russian-based Conti ransomware operation.

Any information that leads to the identification or location of the Conti group's leaders might reward you up to $10 million. In addition, any information leading to the arrest of anybody conspiring with the Conti group will be awarded $5 million.

The FBI estimates that more than 1,000 victims have paid the Conti group more than $150 million in ransomware payments, making its ransomware variant the most expensive ever documented. Just last month, the group had attacked the Government of Costa Rica and targeted at least five government agencies, including the Ministries of Finance, Science, and Technology

According to Price,

"In offering this reward, the United States demonstrates its commitment to protecting potential ransomware victims around the world from exploitation by cybercriminals."
