Them damn hackers always looking for the easy way, too lazy to actually get a job and do some real work. I got hit with that Trojan ransom virus, I guess I was doing research and somehow accidently ended up on a porn site, at least that is the story that I am going with. All of my MS Office files and all of my pictures were infected with a malicious encryption making them useless to me. I got a message on my screen that asked me to pay a nominal amount, if I remember correctly it was about $300 in Bitcoins in order for them to restore my infected files. Those f-in bastards even had the nerve to send me another message stating that I only had two hours left before they would raise the ransom.
I was not in the habit of backing up in those days and I do not give money to terrorists, so I lost everything. I read on the internet and of course most things that you read there are true, that even if you do pay these hackers that they probably will not restore your files. So how can we stop these mothers, as they are just getting worse day after day? In case you did not know the Bitcoin is an innovative payment network which is sort of a new kind of money. The Bitcoin is suppose to be more secure than PayPal, and isn’t that great that the ill-gotten money will be secure in the hands of the terrorists. Most legitimate people use PayPal, but Bitcoin seems to be a little bit less traceable.
I am mad about the Russian Hackers and if someone were to hack Bitcoin and take the money away from these bad guys, I would definitely break out into some sort of dance, probably something like that one that Bruce Willis does in ‘The Last Boy Scout’. It would have to be something real simple, because my body is not conducive for dancing. I am not a hacker, but I would think that our CIA should be doing more to help us catch and punish these a-holes. It seems that the CIA, NSA and the FBI are all aware of what is going on, but with our new president DT, any information on what is being done, seems to be held back from us. Sorry for the rant, but I actually feel much better now after writing this.
