US offers $10 million bounty for info on hackers targeting election systems

Reward issued after North Korea threatens interference in American presidential vote

The U.S. Department of State has offered up to $10 million for information on the identity or location of hackers trying to interfere with the upcoming American presidential election, according to a statement published on the agency’s website on Wednesday. 

The offer comes less than two months after North Korea warned that the U.S. “better hold its tongue and mind its internal affairs” if it wants an “easy holding” of the Nov. 2020 elections.
