Photo's and Information
PII - Marcus Hutchins was the guy who found the kill switch 
for wannacry ransomware. A month later his life was in turmoil 
as every reporter in England was camped outside his house.

Jump ahead a few more months:

Quote:In early August 2017, FBI agents in Las Vegas arrested 23-year-old British
security researcher 
Marcus Hutchins on suspicion of authoring and/or
selling “
Kronos,” a strain of malware designed to steal online banking

1). don't put lots of traceable data on the internet
2). don't do something to attract global attention
So he figured out how to stop it and they busted him for it? Did he actually create the malware? Or was he just a good Samaritan who was wrongfully persecuted?


Chaos, thanks for the tip...!
