Submission + - CryptoLocker Gang Earns $30 Million in Just 100 Days (ibtimes.co.uk)

DavidGilbert99 writes: A report from Dell Secureworks earlier this week reported that up to 250,000 systems have been infected with the pernicious ransomware known as CryptoLocker. Digging a little deeper, David Gilbert at IBTimes UK found that the average ransom being paid was $300, and than on a very conservative basis just 0.4% of people paid the ransom. What does this all add up to? $30 million for the gang controlling CryptoLocker — and this could be "many times bigger."
