CryptoLocker Decryption Service Posted by Sean @ 18:26 GMT

Bitcoin markets have been experiencing significant ups and downs recently… so we thought we'd check on the current rate at the CryptoLocker Decryption Service. A specific keyword search located (a non-Tor) CDS at pyidtyncbecmg.net — hosted in Moscow.

We uploaded a CryptoLocker encrypted file from November.


And when our key pair was found? The asking price was 4 BTC — the same as November.

Only the value of Bitcoin has fluctuated quite a bit since then. At today's price, 4 BTC is worth about 2,000 USD, one thousand dollars cheaper than the last time we wrote about CDS.

A bargain?
