Will the government take this more seriously than the hack on the pipeline?

 

How much in extortion fees is our government paying each year?  Do we have a number?

A group of ransomware hackers have leaked internal police files from Washington, D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), releasing officers' personal information including psychological evaluations, credit history and Social Security numbers.

Vice reports that the cyber criminal group behind the leak is called Babuk, who claimed the monetary offer the department made to prevent the leak was not enough.

"The negotiations reached a dead end, the amount we were offered does not suit us, we are posting 20 more personal files on officers, you can download this archive, the password will be released tomorrow," the group wrote on their website, according to Vice. "If during tomorrow they do not raise the price, we will release all the data."

The leaked information also included polygraph tests, social media posts, employment history, financial liabilities and scanned copies of officers' driver's licenses.

So much for standing their ground and not giving in to terrorists....

 

Why can't they recruit/hire equally talented hackers to do some reverse-hacking?

Maybe find a physical location where these idiots can be caught / eradicated?

Heck, maybe just ransomware their ransomware?

 

When will the authorities say "enough is enough"?

Instead of buying military hardware to fight citizens, the cops should spend some money on basic computer security.

A tight system, and no body cheating by using personal devices on the network, having active USB ports, and a select list of MAC addresses in which to communicate would go a long way. But, that requires discipline and money...
