Cough Cough Hack!
It is nice when you see the bad guy actually caught for once. Especially one who brags about infecting almost a million computers.
Due to that bragging Avast was able to pinpoint the criminal through a phone number, Facebook, and an email address.
The program the guy made didn’t just do ransomware but also cryptojacking and information stealing also. Nasty stuff.
He was raking in over a million a month. What use is that when you are in jail though after being caught?
Crime does not pay. Especially when you ruin a lot of peoples lives like this guy did.
