    Riviera Beach, FL to pay Ransomware Hacker $600,000

    Is this the new career for basement dwelling snowflakes? Holding hostage small government computer systems? Riviera Beach has to write down all 911 calls by hand because they are unable to access their software programs.

    Oh yes, ransom to be paid in bitcoin. How do they trace those things? I am ignorant as to how bitcoin operates.

    Trust me.

    When it comes to that kind of money, people will find a way.

    Now, I have to give credit to the hacker, in that he attacked a GOVERNMENT run agency, so, their hands will be tied in their official response.

    However. The sorts of people who do this sort of thing, swindling THAT much money....are the sorts of people who, one day, just..."disappear."

    Never to be heard from again.....

    somebody in the Riviera Beach IT department is going to fired.
    sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most.

    MIGHT need to be investigated as well.

    This COULD be an "inside" job......
