    True! I have read a lot about these cyber attacks in Dec 16. The main and prime motive is ransom. No one can deny that. I think governments should take extreme action and improve cyber crime laws.

    The most recent one was a scam though. I am talking about WanaCry ransomware. They were asking for $312 per pc. Some people did pay them and it never unlocked their files.
