    Anybody want to bet that Facebook, Twitter etc know who these cretins are, and that they are still allowed a space on their sites?

      And what would the motivation be for Facebook & Twitter to knowingly allow these people on their sites? They’re high paying customers?

        Wait – you didn’t have to pay for your FB and Twitter accounts? Man, I got robbed! :D

    I knew when CNA went down it was a hack and they were not disclosing it.

    You can bet this will increase, and why not, numbers like these (payouts) make this the most lucrative crime going right now, and if you commit this crime in California it is most likely going to be only a misdemeanor!

    This happened and they did not inform the policy holders which is a HUGE LIABILIITY — this
    is very dangerous holding personal information hostage they still could have sold the information.

    Sadly, I see this only getting worse.

      I feel the same, unfortunately. Many people that I’ve spoken to have said that paying the ransom will make it worse. But, to my thinking, that ship sailed long ago. After just one successful malware breach, anyone who was inclined to behave in this way discovered that it can pay off. It doesn’t take multiple rounds of success to encourage. And frustratingly, there seems to be very little risk. When was the last time you heard of anyone being caught and brought to justice? I can’t think of a single incidence of true prosecution and penalty. Maybe someone else knows of some?
