There's definitely been a big turn over the past so-many years. The spam business isn't what it used to be, allowing ransomware to really take off as a business model. The pendulum appears to be swinging back to the parasitic approach to malicious hacking as these bad actors realize that they may get more bang for their buck (and risk profile) in the long run via cryptojacking.
