‘Educational’ ransomware

An article by David Bisson – Ransomware author tries to blackmail security researcher into taking down ‘educational’ malware project -looks at the complicated relationship between unequivocal ransomware (Magic, Ransom_Cryptear.B) and open-source ‘educational’ malware (Hidden Tear, EDA2). Not to mention the unfortunate affair of the free-hosting service that suspended the author’s account and deleted the data, so that even the criminal is unable to decrypt affected files now.
