Confidence
This is an interesting addition to the usual malware attacks plans. Clearly those behind the software have a lot of confidence that providing a direct connection to them won't help authorities identify those individuals that create such malware. 

I bet this does end up with more people paying up though. Lack of know how of how to buy and transfer bitcoins is probably the number one reason a lot of people don't pay.
