The Cryptolocker is as closely linked to the Bitcoin as it is linked to the US Dollar. They are the two currencies in which you can pay the ransom and, actually, the transfer of US Dollars is supported via three different methods (uKash, cashU and MoneyPak), where Bitcoins is just supported by a single method. Therefore I find it more likely that the developer of cryptolocker is linked to US Dollar than to Bitcoin...
Besides, anyone that was involved in bitcoins since the early days and wanted to get rich quick, will probably have done so at the beginning of the year, when the price went from a few cents to several hundred dollars. Anybody asking for BitCoins now, imho failed missed to get involved with bitcoins at the right time when he could get thousands of bitcoins for a few cents.
is that a bird? a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!
