Bitcoin Ransomware Threat Remains a Cause of Concern

Granted, there is no personal information attached to a Bitcoin wallet address, but that makes the user pseudonymous and not anonymous.
Everyday consumers still see Bitcoin as an anonymous payment method, making it a perfect candidate for illegal activities, including ransomware.
Ransomware + Bitcoin = A Worrying Combination
However, Ransomware is putting a whole new spin on the “pseudonymity vs. anonymity” debate.
Needless to say, ransomware is a real threat and not just because most infections can only be resolved by paying in Bitcoin.
Until a permanent solution can be introduced to the public, Bitcoin ransomware attacks will continue relentlessly.
