State Department Will Pay Up to $10 Million for Information on Foreign Government Hackers Trying to Interfere in U.S. Elections, Issues Report on Russia's Continued Disinformation Campaigns

The State Department said it would offer rewards of up to $10 million for information to help identify any person who, acting at the direction of a foreign government, tries to hack into election or campaign infrastructure. The diplomatic arm of the government offered the bounty on the same day it released a report that states Russia continues to use a network of proxy websites to spread disinformation in the West. The report, produced by the Department’s Global Engagement Center, says that the Strategic Culture Foundation is directed by Russia’s foreign intelligence service, the S.V.R., and stands as “a prime example of longstanding Russian tactics to conceal direct state involvement in disinformation and propaganda outlets.”
