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.
