They now even have ransomware as a service, where they make it easy for anyone to create ransomware and demand payments.

    Yes, it's getting really crazy.  Now with bitcoins, it makes is really easy to demand payments anonymously and a great way for criminals to monetize their hacking.  Their ROI is going through the roof, with mature ecosystems developing.  It is scary.

    I am going to have to say no, that Ransomware is not the new technology because CIA agents are already working to find a solution because, to be honest, I find this software pretty dangerous because it can result in cyber attacks and valuable information can be leaked to the cyber attackers which I find very dangerous and risky. Only because of this danger, I find that it could end up getting taken down or all of the servers taken down because I find this software dangerous.
