On Saturday, November 6, it was reported that the US offered the $10 million bounty for the Colonial Pipeline hackers. Anyone who can provide information about individuals in the DarkSide group is eligible to receive the bounty. The DarkSide hack back in May shut down a 5,500 mile-long fuel line, causing a severe gas shortage in many states across the US. The group made its $4.4 million ransom demand during the days-long attack. Separate $5 million rewards have been offered to people who have other information regarding the infrastructure attacks.
