    There are lines you simply don't cross... Even as a criminal.

    This would be one of those lines.

    It's probably a good thing I'm not in charge of the criminal justice system. lol. But people like this would definitely be getting what they deserved.

    Anonymous needs to swoop in, & do some vigilante-style hack on hack crime.

    God I hate cyber criminals. If you're going to hold an organization for ransom, target a fucking a profitable, non-essential service, like a sports team or something. Patients lives could be in the balance. This is straight up terrorism for profit.

    The people doing it deserve death

    But it's also infuriating how many multimillion (or billion) $ corporations don't take cybersecurity seriously. At all.

    I've lost count of how many times my personal information has been "compromised" in a "security breach".
    (But the execs will still collect their 6-8 figure compensation, despite their negligence)

    I see this a lot at my job. Someone comes in and tells is their computer has been compromised and they want us to remove the virus and reclaim their files. I have to give them the bad news that ransomware malware is nearly impossible to crack and that the only way to get your files back is to pay the ransom. Its digital hostage taking is what it is and it happens a lot.

    Anonymous consists mostly of script kiddies with too much time on their hands and access to premade tools. These data extortionists are a part of Russian organized crime syndicates. They're not in the same league. It'd be like teenage graffiti artists going after the Hell's Angels.
