That's good to know and shows that Ransomware doesn't necessarily need to be quite as scary as it often seems. Considering the hackers are getting something for nothing though, it makes sense that they would work with those affected - especially since an unfamiliarity with Bitcoin is likely to be common place in the people who are caught out by phishing and other scams that lead to ransomware infections.
