Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the identification or location of any person who, while acting at the direction of or under the control of a foreign government, interferes with any U.S. federal, state, or local election by violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).
Sajjad Kashian is an employee of Iranian cyber company Emennet Pasargad, which provides cyber capabilities and support to Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security, as well as to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the IRGC-Qods Force – both of which are U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
From at least September through November 2020, Emennet staff participated in an Iranian state-sponsored, multi-phased online operation targeting the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Among other things, Kashian managed computer network infrastructure used to carry out the voter intimidation and influence campaign and sought to purchase social media accounts in furtherance of the voter intimidation and influence campaign.
