iBoss blog: Understanding the keys to writing successful ransomware

It is ironic that we have to look towards the authors of ransomware as examples of some of the leading aspects of software engineering. And while what they are doing is reprehensible and criminal, they ply their trade with improvements in customer service, using the cloud to package their programs, and lead in understanding the psychology of their ultimate victims. With all this effort going towards developing malware, it isn’t that surprisingly that this category has become very adept at making money. Perhaps legit software vendors can learn from some of these experiences, while hopefully avoiding some of the darker forces.

In my blog for IBoss today, I talk about some of these issues.
