Just thought I'd like to start a topic regarding what it must be like to live the life of a highly 'successful' (if you can call it that! lol) professional malware creator......some job title, huh?? lol..............
I mean, with the out-and-out seeming 'success' (I choose that word with much malaise! ) of some of these ransomware infections and other such various scams these rogue villainous guys and girls are creating... and the fact that so many folk are seemingly left with no choice but to pay up the ransoms, I have this image in my head of some of these folk living a highly swanky lifestyle with pads high up in Beverly Hills somewhere, yachts moored off the coast of Nassau, fleets of luxury hyper-cars and jetting off to Casinos around the World as they live the high-life.....all funded by the proceeds of their criminal activities whilst laughing in the faces of us mere mortals who are falling prey by the thousands to the devious (and seemingly highly-successful!) rogue and sinister programs they created......
How must they feel when they go to bed at night and wake in the morning knowing that they are as rich as they ever will likely need to be....all because they ripped off many thousands of innocent and decent people via the web? I wonder if they feel any guilt? Are they constantly having to watch over their shoulder....dreading the day that comes when they feel a tap n the back by the FBI or some other government authority!!?? I wonder what their average day 'in the office' entails?.....and the way they lead their devious lifestyles??
Please forgive me for sounding so freakin weird when I say it...but for some strange reason, I'd love to see into the minds of these folk and try to decipher what goes on in their heads and what makes them tick!
Honestly, I can't actually even begin to imagine or even speculate as to the answers to all these questions, but I'm just wondering if anyone else can....if only for pure entertainment value and something to gossip about!
Anyone have any thoughts???
