Our UK politicians are reviewing the computer misuse act, and have made an argument that paying ransoms to ransomware groups encourage them to do more criminal acts. Thus, they want to make PAYING ransom to get your data back, illegal. They argue that if PAYING ransom is illegal, no companies would do it, and hence the criminals would find no incentive to do ransomware attacks anymore.

Snide comments (please ignore if not interested):

– We did it UK boys and girls! Ransomware is no more!

– Next we watch out for their solution to homelessness : https://youtu.be/JWAxzgCYxpc
