#AceNewsReport – May.14: An anonymous reader quotes Krebs On Security: As thousands of organizations work to contain and clean up the mess from this week’s devastating Wana ransomware attack, the fraudsters responsible for releasing the digital contagion are no doubt counting their earnings and congratulating themselves on a job well done, but according to anonymous source they earned very little #AceNewsDesk reports
WanaDecrypt 0r Ransomware Earns Just $26,000 In Ransom Payments
Published on May 14, 2017 at 01:34AM But according to a review of the Bitcoin addresses hard-coded into Wana, it appears the perpetrators of what’s being called the worst ransomware outbreak ever have made little more than USD $26,000 so far from the scam… It’s worth noting that the ransom note Wana popped up on victim screens (see screenshot above) included a “Contact Us” feature that may have been used by some victims to communicate directly with the fraudsters… I find it depressing to think of the massive financial damage likely wrought by this ransom campaign in exchange for such a comparatively small reward.
