Just learned a new word -- Ransomware
This is a new way of hacking where the contents of your computer is stolen and you're left with a ransom note. Read a story about a man who has operated a radio station for 50 years out of his basement. His music library was stolen, and the "kidnappers" want $500 to give it back.
Who are these people? Were they dropped on their head as babies? Are they missing some human gene? I am by far not Pollyanna, but I can't imagine doing this and feeling good about yourself.
