This morning I decided to write some ransomware.
I’ve never done it before, and I can’t code in C, the language ransomware is mostly commonly written in, but I have a reasonably good idea of what ransomware does. Previously, this lack of technical skills would have served as something of a barrier to my “criminal” ambitions. I’d have been left with little choice but to hang out on dodgy Internet forums or to sidle up to people wearing hoodies in the hope they’re prepared to trade their morals for money. Not anymore though.
