The evolving complexity of ransomware continues to impress me. Now they have moved from simply stealing your passwords for “harvest” later to utilizing these passwords on-the-fly. This is a frightening evolution. While the likelihood actual Bitcoins were stole are questionable it is a considerable step for the ransomware developers to continue to monetize their software.

These are the types of reasons that I say, “stay vigilant my friends.”
