Hhis could be a GOOD THING. Spam exists because there are users stupid enough to click on the links to buy Viagra and whatnot. Similarly, there was little consequence for employees who fell for phishing e-mails and infected their who company network.

Now, being out $600 every time you do something so stupid, is sure to be a painful lesson for those who still haven't learned proper e-mail/internet security. That's right, ransomware could potentially END SPAM.

"Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity."
