Ransomware payout in under 5 hours
There is no way to associate a payment in bitcoin with a particular infected computer.
To do that, attackers would need to have provided unique payment addresses for each computer or unique payment amounts.
In the mean time, start fresh and dont pay the ransom.
So maybe i’d have several people sign up for coinbase accounts and then aggregate the bitcoin together into one account.
Then, are there really any long-term drawbacks if people pay the ransom?
