The recent ransomware, Wannacry has affected more than 100,000 organizations in 150 countries has brought happiness to a Taiwanese Netizen who also was a victim of the ransomware.


The Netizen email the customer service of Wannacry ransomware after his PC got infected, and said that he only makes $400 monthly, and he couldn't afford the 0.345 bitcoin he was asked to pay. He wrote; I only make US$400 a month, you really wanna do this to me?” saying that he couldn’t afford the ransom to decrypt his computer"

He then got a response from the customer service representative at Wannacry that said they will switch his computer to decryption mode as they had over-estimated the average income of normal Taiwanese.
