The black cat occupies America… and $10 million for any information about it!


On Wednesday, the US State Department offered a reward of up to $10 million for information about the ransomware group known as “Black Cat.”

This group hacked into the technology unit of UnitedHealth Group and disrupted insurance payments across the country.

“The BlackCat ransomware service group (also known as ALV) penetrated the computer networks of critical infrastructure sectors in the United States, and around the world,” the department said in the reward statement.

UnitedHealth said last week that it had begun meeting a backlog of medical claims of more than $14 billion, after it restored its services to work following the cyber attack, which caused widespread disruption that began in late February.

The attack had a severe impact on community health centers serving more than 30 million poor and uninsured patients.

The hackers said earlier this month that the company had paid a ransom of $22 million in an attempt to restore its systems, without announcing whether they had restored the company’s services after receiving the money. (Al-Arabiya)
