Has it always been this bad?

I was putting some thought on the News when it was reporting about current events on cyber attacks and ransoms-ware attacks. Has it always been this bad? If so, is it because it was targeting individuals that the government wouldn’t give AF about? Is it making the news now because it’s impacting someone important/impacting lives? Or a combination of both kinda?
Disclosure*: I didn’t follow this Reddit page until after some events in the US.

It’s always been this bad….the news is just reporting it more often now.

No, after Shadow Brokers released the NSA tools around April of 2017 it’s much worse than it was. Wannacry linked 2 NSA zero-days and started the trajectory we are now on.
